Tue
Apr
19

Dr. Paul Farmer will speak to Pope Francis’s recent encyclical “Laudato Si’”: On Care for Our Common Home. Putting in context Francis’s challenge on poverty and the environment, Farmer will discuss his journey from aid to accompaniment in international healthcare. Accompaniment, a Catholic-inspired model for development championed by Partners In Health, has potential for widespread impact by promoting sustainable partnerships to end global poverty through strengthening local systems.

Reception to follow in the Great Hall, Hesburgh Center for International Studies
