From multidrug-resistant TB to the HIV/AIDS pandemic, Paul Farmer, the co-founder of Partners in Health, has taken on some of the most difficult challenges of global health and discovered new ways of making progress.
Dr. Farmer will be the keynote speaker at Seattle Biomedical Research Institute’s fifth annual Passport to Global Health Celebration on April 23. The event is designed to raise awareness of infectious disease research as a means to improve global health and funds to support scientific research at SBRI. Farmer’s life story in battling global health disparities was told in Tracy Kidder’s best-selling book “Mountains Beyond Mountains.” For more information on the SBRI event and Farmer’s talk, click here.
