    Haiti, Entrepreneurship, and Global Health: An Evening to Act Full Details [X]
    6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
    Babson Campus - Olin Hall - Needham/Wellesley Room
    The Leonard A. Schlesinger Fund Global Healthcare Entrepreneurship has a mandate to create opportunities for Babson faculty and students, the greater global health community (and the Boston area community) to apply Babson's Entrepreneurial Thought and Action (ET&amp;A) methodology to the world's greatest healthcare challenges. At this event, the Schlesinger Fund is partnering with the National Association for the Advancement of Haitian Professionals (NAAHP), USAID PADF and other organizations to host a brainstorm event around the Diaspora Challenge Initiative. The Diaspora Challenge Initiative is soliciting ideas from the Haitian Diaspora about ways to harness the power of remittances and other capital to support Haiti's development agenda. The Schlesinger Fund is inviting the Babson and greater Boston communities to gather together, to learn about the healthcare challenges that exist in Haiti particularly after Hurricane Matthew, and to put their minds to work using the ET&amp;A methodology around Haitian-led ideas for economic development in Haiti related to healthcare delivery.<br /> Registration encouraged: <a href="http://bit.ly/GHEHaitiHack">http://bit.ly/GHEHaitiHack</a><br />
