Past President Morrie presents our speaker, University of Western Rotaract Vice President Karishma Desai with a cheque for $150 to support the Rotaract Global Health Symposium, Sunday January 19th.  The goal of the Symposium is to emphasize that health inequity is not restricted to the developing world and health promotion and advocacy initiatives can have huge benefits in our own London community.

 
 

Karishma spoke passionately about her Grandfather, Hasu Naik, a longtime member of the Rotary club of Windsor 1918 who played such a tremendous mentoring role in her life that has led her to assuming a leadership role in the Rotaract club and in her life. 

Karishma also spoke the upcoming Day of Giving, Saturday January 25th.   For more information and to volunteer go to: 

 
Global Health Symposium:

Mandela said “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” We hope to give students purpose and motivate them to use their Western University education. Our goal is to emphasize that health inequity is not restricted to the developing world, but that health promotion and advocacy initiatives also can have huge benefits in our own London community.

We will be inviting local organizations which provide services to the London community and its marginalized populations to have booths at the symposium. By connecting with these groups, students will find opportunities to give back and gain experience in the areas of health advocacy, health promotion and community engagement. Proceeds from the conference will go to the London organization, Art for AIDS International which raises HIV/AIDS awareness both globally and locally.

WHEN: January 19th 2014, 11 am – 4 pm

DONATION: $10

WHERE: It’s going to be on campus; Lunch and snack will be provided and certificates for attendance will be awarded.
