Family Fest 2013 - October 11-13

Hello families, host families, and friends!

Family Fest is a time for families to reconnect with their student and experience a bit of campus life and the surrounding community. We are delighted to host you for Family Fest 2013. Review the draft family fest schedule and find additional updates throughout the summer.

We encourage you to consider coming a day early to participate in the International Roundtable events that begin on Thursday, October 10th, and continue through Friday, October 11th. The theme, Global Health: Promoting Equity Within and Across Borders, will promote critical examination of recent progress in light of existing and emerging challenges in Global Health through three main branches: health as a human right, reaching the poor through innovation, and public-private collaborations. Speakers and discussion sessions will explore the multifaceted nature of health disparities around the world, examine the root causes of these disparities, and highlight innovative solutions to health priorities
