Will hunger, disease and poverty ever disappear? Can you, as an individual, really do anything to help ease suffering around the world? Paul Farmer says “Yes.”
And he should know. He’s a charismatic doctor and social activist who chairs the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard. He has shown through his own work how hope, solidarity and faith can really have an impact in places like Haiti, Rwanda, Peru and Russia. And he has challenged students, audiences and readers to challenge their assumptions and doubt about healing the world. Now you can hear for yourself what this inspiring activist has to say about global health equity and social justice as he speaks with The New York Times reporter Claudia Dreifus.
