Celebrating Paul Farmer: An Advocate for Equitable Healthcare (May 21, 2022)
The Haitian Studies Association (HSA) cordially invites the public and friends of Haiti to a town hall forum in memory of Dr. Paul Edward Farmer who recently passed away on February 21, 2022. We are pleased to have four distinguished guests: Dr. Toni Eyssallenne, MD, Ms. Marc Julmisse, MPH, RN, Dr. Donaldson Conserve, PhD, and Dr. Pierre Minn, PhD, who will reflect on Dr. Farmer’s life, ideas, works, and legacy. Dr. Farmer worked with communities and grassroots organizations in Haiti and the Haitian diaspora to advocate for access to healthcare for all. As a researcher, he highlighted the connections between health inequities and human rights. Tracy Kidder called him “the man who could cure the world.” A co-founder of Partners in Health, Dr. Farmer was instrumental in building the 300-bed University Hospital in Mirebalais after the 2010 earthquake. We remember Dr. Farmer for his compassion, kindness and relentless advocacy for equitable healthcare around the world, especially in Rwanda and Haiti. Please join us as we remember this mapou! The virtual forum will be held via Zoom Meeting on Saturday, May 21.
