Timmy Global Health Guest Lecture - Samson Njolomole from Partners in Heatlh

-

Location: Jordan 101

In 2007, Samson Njolomole began working as a translator in his home district of Neno, Malawi. At the time, antiretroviral therapy (ART) was available to only 10 patients in the district. Identified for his compassion, defense of human rights, and strengths as a community organizer, Sam quickly rose to become HIV Program Coordinator, where he was instrumental in expanded capacity for ART to the two hospitals and eleven health centers that currently serve over 4,500 HIV patients throughout the district. Later, as Community Programs Manager, Sam initiated innovative community-based health education, outreach and testing events. Sam's charisma and passion for justice for the poor draws attendance that swells into the thousands at community events. In his current role as External Relations Manager, Sam serves as the primary liaison between Abwenzi Pa Za Umoyo and local, domestic, and international partners and communities.

This is a rare opportunity so don't miss it.

Following the talk there will be a tent city set up on South Quad from Friday night through Saturday morning in association with the Syria Solidarity Movement. More details to come.
