Description

The Institute for Women's Leadership at Rutgers University introduces the Anita Ashok Datar Lecture on Women's Global Health.

The inaugural lecture, “Women’s Global Health and the Fight Against Poverty” will feature Gayle E. Smith, President and CEO of The ONE Campaign.

Previously serving as Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development in the Obama Administration and as special assistant to President Obama and President Clinton, Gayle Smith is one of the world's leading experts on global health and international development. She is President and CEO of the ONE Campaign, a grassroots campaigning and advocacy organization with more than eight million people around the world taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa.


Honoring Anita Ashok Datar

Anita Ashok Datar, a graduate of Rutgers University ('95), dedicated her career to public health issues, especially those concerning women and children. While working on a mission for USAID in the African country of Mali, Anita's life was tragically cut short when she was the lone American killed on November 20, 2015 in a terrorist attack that claimed twenty other lives.
