Come join PIH | Engage to watch “How to Survive a Plague,” a film about the first AIDS activists who turned the disease from a death sentence to a manageable condition. Two coalitions, ACT-UP and TAG (Treatment Action Group) and many self-made activists lobbied the pharmaceutical industry to develop and create drugs that reached patients in record time. With never-before-seen archival footage from the 1980s and ’90s, filmmaker David France puts the viewer in the midst of the controversial actions, the heated meetings, the heartbreaking failures, and the exultant breakthroughs of the activists. 

Thursday, February 20 in the Allen Auditorium (Allen North, 181L). 6-8pm. See you there!

Are you interested in learning more about research in global health? Are you looking for opportunities to network with faculty on campus?

If so, please join us for our first Global Health Discussion Circle of the academic year. This event is an opportunity for a small group of students to come together and discuss a current, relevant article on a global health topic. Each journal club event will be co-facilitated by an undergraduate student and a faculty member. 

This first event will be held on Wednesday, November 6th from 3:30-4:30pm in HUB 214.

We will discuss the review article “Designing Tomorrow’s Vaccines” by Gary J. Nabel M.D., Ph.D. in the New England Journal of Medicine, which can be downloaded at the link below:
