Global Health Initiative March Workshop: Saving the World? Misconceptions in Global Aid
Where is the line between foreign aid and volun-tourism?
What are the doctor’s roles and boundaries in an international aid setting? How can you get involved?
What biases or unrealistic expectations do health care workers carry when they work abroad?
Come hear Marion Tipple, a pediatric cardiologist with extensive travel experience throughout Asia, speak on her perspective of meeting need and overstepping boundaries. Work through interactive case studies to discover common misconceptions in global aid and possibly unearth some of your own prejudices.
