Announcements and Events
I will keep this page updated with global-health related events.
I am convinced that social change comes about when people of different backgrounds with varied talents unite for a common cause, that “who you know is more important than what you know.” So, I’d like to get to know people, communicate, and collaborate. One way is through this blog. Here are a few other ideas for those of you that live close to Provo, Utah: (If you live elsewhere, perhaps you can organize get-togethers for people interested in global health!)
-Every 3 months or so, the Utah Valley Global Health Group will sponsor an informal, ethnic dinner, as well as discussion about global health. Our first meeting was on April 7, and the theme was be “microcredit and health.” See here for details. Our next one will be on October 19, and the theme will be “leprosy.” I will give a brief overview of the global burden of leprosy, and Sylvia Finlayson, the Director of Program Development for Rising Star Outreach, will share her experiences. As always, the dinner is very informal (come and go as you like), and plan on bringing a side dish. Please RSVP to this email: unacceptableglobalhealth at gmail dot com, and I will send directions.
