As part of Hampshire’s DIV IV weekend, CBD presented the film, Bending the Arc . The film describes the struggles and successes of Drs. Jim Yong Kim, Paul Farmer, and Ophelia Dahl, whose early work in Haiti ultimately developed into a community health model that has changed global health forever. After the film, four Hampshire alums joined in a discussion around issues of global and local health care policy.
