Two esteemed experts on global health issues – one American, one Rwandan – offer a panel discussion on the state of world health.
Dr. Agnes Binagwaho, Vice Chancellor of the University of Global Health Equity, an initiative of Partners in Health, brings her perspective as a practicing physician, scholar, and government health official, including having served as Rwandan Minister of Health. She is active in advocacy and political mobilization on behalf of women and children, in Rwanda and worldwide. Partners In Health is focused on changing the way health care is delivered around the world.
Thomas Bollyky offers the insights of a scholar and author, having directed the first Council on Foreign Relations-sponsored Independent Task Force devoted to global health, and he also has a forthcoming book, Plagues and the Paradox of Progress: Why the World is Getting Healthier in Worrisome Ways.
The panel will be moderated by Dr. Felicia Knaul, Director, Institute for Advanced Study of the Americas and Professor, Miller School of Medicine, and it will be introduced by Boca Raton Regional Hospital President and CEO Jerry Fedele.
