Fighting for the Neglected: World NTD Day Symposium

For more than 30 years, The Task Force for Global Health has worked on the elimination of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) which are a group of ancient diseases that threaten 1.6 billion people living in the poorest and most marginalized communities worldwide. What sets NTDs apart is the way they blind, disable, or disfigure people, taking away not only their health, but also their chances of staying in school, earning a living, or even being accepted by their family or community.

Learn more about these discriminating diseases by joining us for a panel discussion with global health practitioners from The Carter Center, RTI International, and The Task Force for Global Health on why they are passionate and dedicated to beating NTDs and why you should be too

3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Women With Heart Initiative - Men's Breakfast

Whether it be strokes, heart attacks, pre-eclampsia or congestive heart failure, we all know someone who has been touched by cardiovascular disease. Heart Healthy Week is an opportunity to come together to discuss ways we can tackle this issue in our communities. It is a time where we can be in a safe space to share our stories, those of own experiences and of those closest to us.

Heart Healthy Week is also an opportunity to celebrate the contributions of the Women With Heart Initiative, which invests in the next generation of culturally-competent, rigorously trained and highly-skilled healthcare leaders at Morehouse School of Medicine, some of whom may be the cardiologists and biomedical researchers to help in the elimination of cardiovascular health disparities.

We welcome men in the metro-Atlanta community to learn more about their role in helping communities and their families live healthier lives to prevent cardiovascular disease as well.
