Join physician, humanitarian, and author Dr. James Orbinski for an intimate discussion on responding and growing through crisis. The talk will be guided by special guest Bobby Bailey, award-winning humanitarian, gifted storyteller, documentary filmmaker, and co-founder of Invisible Children and co-founder of Global Poverty Project.
Dr. Orbinski has delivered humanitarian relief through war, famine, epidemic disease and genocide with Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF). He was International President of MSF from 1998-2001, and accepted the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to MSF in 1999.
As the cofounder of Dignitas International (an NGO treating nearly 300,000 HIV patients in Malawi) as well as a Visiting Blum/Living Peace Scholar, Dr. Orbinski takes a practical and inspired approach to designing a world where well-being is available to all, regardless of wealth, gender or geography.
In this talk, Bobby and James will discuss what it is like to see and act from a place of hope amidst unimaginable suffering.
