Spring 2018 Speaker Series: The Diaspora and The Medically Underserved: A Case for a New Approach
This is an illustrated talk about Professor Ofodile’s experience working with Diaspora groups to provide medical aid in Africa and the Caribbean.
This series of talks, with discussion, is the result of collaboration between three organizations: Emeritus Professors in Columbia (EPIC); Columbia University School of Professional Studies; and Morningside Retirement and Health Services (MRHS). This is the second year for the series which is open to the public without charge.
Emeritus Professors in Columbia (EPIC) is a professional and social fellowship of people who have formally retired from their Columbia careers as university professors, researchers, and administrators but are still professionally active. Since its founding in 1998, EPIC has worked to continually expand its portfolio of activities and in 2017 launched its first Speakers Series in collaboration with the CU School of Professional Studies (SPS) Community Relations office.
