Three years after a devastating earthquake struck Haiti, dozens of health-policy experts, government officials, and others from Haiti met with faculty and students from across Dartmouth to assess ongoing development efforts and discuss future initiatives.
Focus on poverty
As the keynote speaker at the annual Martin Luther King, Jr., celebration in January, Roy Wade ('07) urged medical students to consider how poverty plays a role in contributing to health disparities. In early February, some Geisel students made clear that they already take this lesson seriously, as they organized a conference on the connections between medicine and poverty. The conference included a talk by Jim Withers, the founder of the Street Medicine Institute, who discussed his work with the homeless in Pittsburgh.
