Drs. Brewer and Bhatta Engage Students in Geneva

Students at the World Health Assembly at the United Nations Headquarters

In May of 2019, Dr. Thomas Brewer and Dr. Madhav Bhatta led 26 students to Geneva, Switzerland for the World Health Assembly at the United Nations Headquarters. Students met Dr. Manoj Kurian, a Malaysian medical doctor trained in Community Health and Health Systems Management, who is affiliated with the World Council of Churches. Dr. Kurian arranged for students to meet with speakers in various health fields throughout the week in Geneva. Students also took day trips to Annecy and Chamonix, France, and ascended to the top of Mount Blanc, the tallest mountain in western Europe. Students had the opportunity to hear Ministers of Health from across the globe speak about important public health problems and solutions to those problems. The 2020 study abroad experience in Geneva is scheduled to take place May 16-30. https://www.kent.edu/publichealth/geneva
