Global Health Events & News
Upcoming event for students and faculty:
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) will be hosting an event titled, Because Tomorrow Needs Her on Tuesday, October 13, 2015 at 7:00-8:30 PM in the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art. An MSF field worker, Rebecca Singer, will speak to the challenges women and children face when accessing healthcare in contexts of crises, as well as the preventable maladies that claim the lives of women and children daily and what can be done to minimize these unnecessary deaths. She will also speak to her personal experiences of serving Doctors Without Borders as a nurse in Liberia, Kenya, Chad, Zimbabwe, Papua New Guinea, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Following her multimedia presentation, she will host a Q&A session with the audience. The seating is limited, so although this is a free and open-to-the-public event, we recommend attendees to RSVP online here: http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/tomorrow-needs-her-madison to ensure themselves a seat at the venue - we have about 80 seats left available!
