Bending the Arc Documentary Screening with Jim Yong Kim

September 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm MDT

Boise State Students, come join us for a free screening of award-winning documentary Bending the Arc at 6pm on Sept. 13 in the SUB. Learn how a friendship among three graduate students changed the world and created a global health non-profit.

Their goal was simple but daring: to make high quality health care available to everyone, even in the world’s poorest countries. Fighting entrenched diseases, political and bureaucratic machinery, and the existing charity and medical establishments, these crusaders took their fight from the village to the world stage, to ensure that healthcare is a right for all, and that geography should not determine destiny.

One of the stars, Jim Yong Kim, will be present for a Q&A session after the movie and will share additional stories about his global health work on Sept. 14.
