For those of you out there interested in global health, there’s a great event coming up on Wednesday, November 16, brought to you by GlobeMed at Columbia University and the NYC Partners in Health Community.
From the Partners in Health Website, here is the basic info about the event:
Join us for an intimate conversation with Joia Mukherjee, PIH Chief Medical Officer, and Manzi Anatole, Director of the Mentoring and Enhanced Supervision of Health Centers program of PIH Rwanda. This will be a great opportunity to learn about the successes and challenges that PIH has faced in building public health capacity in close coordination with the Rwandan Government. In many ways, Rwanda is a model for building an effective and equitable public health system. Manzi Anatole has been on the cutting edge of building a decentralized supervision system for nurses in health centers serving Rwanda’s rural poor. Dr. Joia Mukherjee brings the global perspective of applying the lessons of PIH’s work in Rwanda to other PIH projects around the world.
We intend this event to be a forum to meet with and learn from two experienced and dedicated professionals in the field of global health. So please bring your questions!
