March 20Lynne Quittell, MD,  Director, North American Office, Ben-Gurion University Medical School for International Health; Pediatric Pulmonologist, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.

Lecture: Tikkun Olam Without Borders: Healing the World Through Global Medicine

Join us to hear how a unique medical school in the Israeli desert prepares doctors to address complex health concerns throughout the world, and to practice medicine across cultural, geographic and technological boundaries.  The Medical School for International Health (MSIH) at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) provides specialized training for physicians to work in underserved populations in developing countries, rural areas, inner cities, and Israel’s Negev region with large numbers of Bedouins and immigrants. Taught in English and drawing students from around the world, MSIH gives doctors the clinical skills and medical knowledge to put patients first – whether in a humanitarian crisis, a refugee clinic, or in one of the world’s leading medical centers.
 
Presented in partnership with American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev
