Global Film Series: Bending the Arc

April 4, 2018 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


To celebrate the launch of the Global Health Council at NC State, you’re invited to a FREE screening of

Bending the Arc is a documentary about a team of young people—Paul Farmer, Jim Yong Kim, Ophelia Dahl—whose charitable medical work 30 years ago ignited a global health movement. Their goal was simple but daring: to make high quality health care available to everyone, even in the world’s poorest countries. Fighting entrenched diseases, political and bureaucratic machinery, and the existing charity and medical establishments, these crusaders took their fight from the village to the world stage, to ensure that health care is a right for all, and that geography should not determine destiny.

This film will be introduced by Dr. Andrew Stringer, Director of the Global Health Initiative at NC State University and Director of Global Health Education in the College of Veterinary Medicine.

This event is free and open to the public. Pizza and snacks will be provided.
