Beat NTDs: World NTD Day Symposium
When: Thursday, January 30, 2020 from 3:30 to 5pm (EST).
Where: The Task Force for Global Health – 330 W. Ponce de Leon Ave. Decatur, GA 30030
What: 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.
The symposium will be live streamed here and will start at 3:30pm on Thursday, January 30.
