Times of Trouble: The Medical Community’s Response to Humanitarian Crises
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Local and international disasters expose the inequities in our society, and the images of suffering that make us want to act. Local medical innovators are doing just that. Join us to discover how four Cleveland leaders are responding to crises in their own ways. Our panel includes: Nancy G. Wolf, M.D., Ph.D., of the American-Austrian Foundation’s Open Medical Institute; and brothers Zac Ponsky, Founder of Medworks; Lee Ponsky, Founder of MedWish International; and Todd Ponsky of Akron Children’s Hospital. Be part of the conversation!
