School of Social Work Welcomes Dr. Paul Farmer
On Boston University’s annual Global Day of Service, Saturday, April 14, the University will welcome Dr. Paul Farmer, co-founder of Partners in Health (PIH), as the guest speaker for the Hubie Jones Lecture. Dr. Farmer and PIH provide health care and advocacy services for people living in poverty around the world. The Hubie Jones Lecture in Urban Health is an annual symposium addressing vexing health issues distinct to the urban context. Prominent national and international leaders toiling at the intersection of health and social justice present on health-centric topics of importance. The lecture honors the vision of Hubie Jones, dean emeritus of Boston University’s School of Social Work, who inspired and shaped the School’s urban mission during his 16-year tenure and who continues to influence and define the social and civic landscape of Boston as a leader, bridge-builder and advocate.
Today is the final day to register. The event is free and open to the public but space is limited. The lecture will begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 14, 2012 in the School of Law Auditorium. The event will also be streaming live at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/bu-alumni.
