Going Global: Exploring the Challenges and Opportunities of Globalization

Notre Dame is embarking on an ambitious plan to "go global." In this effort, we seek to further internationalize the curriculum, the student body and the faculty; to extend our institutional, scholarly and educational presence around the world; and, to deepen understanding of foreign cultures and societies while being attentive to America’s changing role in the world. In these and many other ways, we will prepare ND students for the transnational professional careers and vocations of the "globalized" 21st century.

Access to Medicines as a Moral Imperative and Human Right

-

Location: Hesburgh Library Carey Auditorium

Hosted by the Eck Institute for Global Health, Professor Fran Quigley of Indiana University McKinney School of Law will present “Access to Medicines as a Moral Imperative and Human Right.” His talk will focus on the challenge of ensuring both robust development of new medicines and access to medicines for those in need–a challenge that is present in our own U.S. communities and in communities across the world.
