The Department of Literature, Journalism and Modern Languages, with the help of Dr. Choung in the Chemistry Department, recently hosted  Dr. Paul Farmer, a medical activist and global humanitarian, who challenged us  see the world as "one world" not a planet divided into three, and to realize that each of us has the obligation to help improve the lives of those who are under-resourced. Dr. Farmer is the founder of Partners In Health and advisor for Pres. Clinton's Global Health Initiative, as well as the chair of the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard University.
