Join me in supporting GlobeMed!
We invite you to join the Host Committee for GlobeMed’s Global Health Summit Honorary Keynote, Lives For Health and Hope. The event will be held on Northwestern University’s campus in Evanston, IL, at Alice Millar Chapel on Friday evening, April 13, 2012.
This year’s Honorary Keynote, Lives For Health and Hope, will celebrate the critical work of two extraordinary women’s rights advocates: Pamela Barnes, corporate leader, former CEO of Elizabeth Glasier Pediatric AIDS Foundation and current CEO of EngenderHealth, and Pamela Angwech, Ugandan human rights activist, survivor of one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises, and visionary community leader.
On April 13, we will have the opportunity to bring them face to face to share their stories of vision, resilience and impact. We invite you to join us in honoring these two dynamic women who are transforming the health of millions of women living in poverty.
