The spread of diseases is not limited by geographic boundaries, people everywhere must be able to use the most recent research to better manage diseases.
Held at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, “Information Access in the Developing World. Why Should We Care? How Does Research4Life Make a Difference” was the seminar presented by Kimberly Parker – Hinari Program Manager – on the past September 6th.
The seminar was organized through the Open Dartmouth Working Group, and sponsored by the Dartmouth College Library and the Center for Health Equity at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. More than 40 faculty, students, and staff from the Dartmouth and DHMC community and visitors from the region engaged in a lively discussion following the presentations, with audience members sharing their particular experiences in information access to the developing world.
During her talk, Kimberly pointed out, that the spread of diseases “is not limited by geographic boundaries so people everywhere must be able to use the most recent research to better manage diseases no matter where the outbreak.”
