Haiti, Entrepreneurship, and Global Health: An Evening to Act
The Schlesinger Fund for Global Health Entrepreneurship at Babson College is partnering with the National Association for the Advancement of Haitian Professionals, USAID, and other partner organizations to host an event supporting the Diaspora Challenge Initiative.
The Diaspora Challenge Initiative is soliciting ideas from the Haitian Diaspora about ways to harness the power of remittances and other capital to support Haiti’s development agenda.
ALL members of the Babson and greater Boston communities are invited to gather together, to learn about the healthcare challenges that exist in Haiti, and to brainstorm with pitchers to help them refine their ideas. Particularly after Hurricane Matthew, minds are needed to work on sustainable ideas for economic development in Haiti that enhance healthcare delivery.
This event will include an expert panelist on Haiti and in-country healthcare delivery challenges:
- Dr. Mack Cheney, Executive Director of the Kletjian Foundation, Director of the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Office of Global Surgery and Health, Professor of Otology and Laryngology at Harvard Medical School
- Prof. Regine Jean-Charles, Boston College (moderator)
- Dr. Michelle Morse, Brigham and Women, Partners in Health and Equal Health
- Dr. Claire-Cecile Pierre, Harvard Medical School
- Nurse Nadia Raymond, Brigham and Women, Partners in Health and Equal Health
