Dare to Dream Film Screening
Cuba’s Latin American Medical School
Monday, March 12, 2018 · 5:30 PM - 7 PM
Join us for our “Dare to Dream” Film Screening! This film tells the story of the largest medical school in the world, the Latin American Medical School, in Havana, Cuba. The story is told through the eyes of US students who received scholarships, with the commitment to return home, and practice medicine in underserved communities in the US.
Through the stories of graduates of ELAM, as it is known in spanish, we will learn the history of this medical school that is revolutionizing healthcare on a global level. We will also, see the promise these doctors represent for their communities.
What happens when a country dares to dream that young people can change the world?
A discussion will follow led by Marina Adler Ph.D. (Professor, Sociology, Anthropology and Health Administration and Policy) and Leslie Salgado (Founder, Friends of Latin America “FOLA”). For any questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Dinner will be served!
