Great Decisions: Global Health – Progress and Challenges 7:00-8:30 pm
Monday, June 18, 2018, 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM
DeLaSalle High School
1 DeLaSalle Drive, Room D104
The collective action of countries, communities and organizations over the last 30 years has literally saved millions of lives around the world. Yet terrible inequalities in health and wellbeing persist. The world now faces a mix of old and new health challenges, including the preventable deaths of mothers and children, continuing epidemics of infectious diseases, and rising rates of chronic disease. We also remain vulnerable to the emergence of new and deadly pandemics. For these reasons, the next several decades will be just as important—if not more so—than the last in determining wellbeing across nations. Speaker Dr. Jokho Farah is director of quality and population health at People’s Center Health Services in Minneapolis. Before that she worked three years with another safety net clinic, and earlier spent time involved in international health, medical missions and humanitarian work in Dubai and Tunisia
