For decades, faith-based organizations have been working across Latin America and the Caribbean to improve living conditions by increasing access to clean water, boosting immunization rates, and providing basic healthcare. If you’re interested in hearing more about this part of the world and what people in our community and our country as a whole is doing, you can attend a FREE seminar at Clowes Hall.
At 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 29, Clowes Hall will play host to the Butler University seminar on Religion and World Civilization. The title of the seminar is Religion and Public Health in Latin America and the Caribbean, and will feature Reverend Thomas G. Streit as the main speaker. He is the research assistant professor of biological sciences at the University of Notre Dame, and has conducted research on the transmission and control of mosquito-borne infections in the tropics.
Specifically, he will be speaking Tuesday evening on the motivation for public health and the prognosis for long-term collaboration with governments and secular groups. For those of you who are interested whether to get involved or from curiosity, you can follow our links (the words in blue) to order tickets. The event has FREE admission, but Clowes Hall is limiting you to two tickets per order so that they don’t overbook the seminar.
