A study of 3,635 older adults found that book readers had a 23-month survival advantage and 20 percent lower mortality risk compared with non readers.
Reading was protective regardless of gender, education or health.
The Friench Simpson Memorial Library has recently received a $500 grant from the American Society of Radiologic Technologists to purchase books and educational materials on medical imaging and radiation therapy.
The grant program is part of National Radiologic Technology Week®, an annual event that recognizes the vital work of medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals across the nation.
The celebration takes place each year during the week that includes Nov. 8 to commemorate the discovery of the x-ray by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen on Nov. 8, 1895. This year’s event took place Nov. 3-9. Pictured with the display of the books purchased with the grant funds are right, Sandra Fojt, radiology clerk and left, Rhonda Leftwich, Radiology Supervisor, both from Lavaca Medical Center.
