Speaker to Present on Health Care in Underserved Communities

Dr. Melissa Davis will talk about her experience studying in Latin America and working in underserved communities at 5:30 p.m. April 17 in Baldwin Hall Little Theater.

Both within U.S. borders and beyond, the Latin American community faces many unique health disparities and barriers to care. Davis will discuss how to develop a workforce to provide care for the Hispanic community, both within U.S. borders and beyond. Clips from the documentary film “Community Doctors” will be shown, and Davis will share her experiences attending the Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM) and working in underserved communities in Columbus, Ohio, and La Ceiba, Honduras. She will share how ELAM trains thousands of medical professionals to meet the needs of communities throughout the Spanish-speaking world.

Sponsored by the Department of Classical and Modern Languages, the presentation is free and open to the public.
