Solving for Why: Lessons from a Decade in Global Surgery (Mark Shrime)

March 18, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 12:15 pm

Rutgers Global Surgery and the Global Surgery Student Alliance present a lecture by Mark G. Shrime, MD, MPH, PhD, FACS.

Shrime is an assistant professor of otolaryngology and of global health and social medicine at the Harvard Medical School.  He serves as the research director at the Program in Global Surgery and Social Change at the Harvard Medical School. His academic pursuits focus on surgical delivery in low- and middle-income countries, where he has a specific interest in the intersection of health and impoverishment. His work aims to determine optimal policies and platforms for surgical delivery that maximize health benefits while minimizing the risk of financial catastrophe faced by patients. To date, he has worked and taught in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Benin, Togo, Congo, Haiti, Saudi Arabia, Cameroon, and Madagascar.

This event is free and open to all Rutgers faculty, staff, and students. Lunch will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
