Re: Panel discussion on the African AIDS Crisis
When: 8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 15
Where: Hodson Hall, Room 110

The Johns Hopkins University Foreign Affairs Symposium will host an exploration of Africa's AIDS crisis on Wednesday, March 15. Titled "AIDS Crisis in Sub-Saharan Africa," the event will feature a panel of experts in public health policy, medicine and international aid.

"While most of our events focus on international politics, exploring issues of public health can help us reach a whole new segment of the Johns Hopkins community," said symposium co-chair Carey Polis, a junior from Bethesda, Md.

The panel will be comprised of Thomas Quinn, Robyn Munford, and Janean Martin. Quinn is a professor at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, and is a senior investigator at the National Institutes of Health. Munford is the U.S. program director for Students Partnership Worldwide, and Martin is a health science specialist in the Office of HIV/AIDS of the U.S. Agency for International Development.

"AIDS Crisis in Sub-Saharan Africa" is the second of seven events this spring meant to explore recent changes in geopolitics. Future events include speeches from MSNBC host Chris Matthews at 8 p.m. on April 3; political thinker and professor Francis Fukuyama of the university's School of Advanced International Studies at 8 p.m. on April 11; and former Middle East Special Envoy Dennis Ross at 8 p.m. on April 26. The symposium will also have panel discussions on Middle East Democratization and Turkish Membership in the European Union.

All events are free and open to the public. A question and answer period and reception will follow the panel discussion. For information, visit www.jhu.edu/fas or e-mail fas@jhu.edu.
