Please join Partners In Health and 92nd Street Y for an evening with Dr. Paul Farmer and Claudia Dreifus.
"Once youve seen Haiti though Paul Farmers eyes, youll never see Haitians, or any of the worlds poorest people, quite the same way again," said President Bill Clinton. The doctor and aid worker joins Claudia Dreifus to give an inspiring insiders view of the post-quake chaos.
Dr. Farmer will highlight his new book, To Repair the World: Paul Farmer Speaks to the Next Generation.
To Repair the World: Paul Farmer Speaks to the Next Generation is a collection of speeches by the charismatic doctor and social activist. One of the most passionate and influential voices for global health equity and social justice, Dr. Farmer encourages young people to tackle the greatest challenges of our times. Engaging, often humorous, and always inspiring, these speeches bring to light the brilliance and force of Dr. Farmer's vision in a single, accessible volume.
A must-read for graduates, students, and everyone seeking to help bend the arc of history toward justice, To Repair the World leaves the reader with an uplifting vision: that with creativity, passion, teamwork, and determination, the next generations can make the world a safer and more human place.
