Bill Tammeus reviews Gustavo Parajón biography: ‘A story that can help shape young lives today’

Thanks to veteran journalist Bill Tammeus for his pre-publication review of Healing the World: Gustavo Parajón, Public Health and Peacemaking Pioneer, which will be released worldwide on January 24, 2023.

His review appears in “The Book Corner” in Bill’s January 4 column. When you visit that web page, you’ll first find Bill’s timely call for all of us to support Holocaust education—considering the alarming rise in antisemitic incidents around the world. Then, as you scroll down, you’ll find The Book Corner review of Healing the World. Bill writes, in part:

Gustavo Parajón’s life can serve as a reminder to many of us citizens of the U.S. that there’s a bigger world beyond our borders and that throughout that world we can find amazing people doing amazing things. … And his story can encourage others to devote their lives to being a healing presence in the world, whether or not they are physicians. … This is a story that needed to be told, and one that can help shape young lives today.
