This event is an opportunity to hear from two Cuban medical students. They
will speak about Cuba's internationalist mission to bring medical care to
remote corners of the earth. With 300 medical personnel in Haiti when the
earthquake struck, Cuba was among the first to provide help. The two will
also speak about health care, education, jobs and the impact of the world
economic crisis on Cuba.
