Join TCMC and University of Scranton’s Schemel Forum series for “Global Health Disparities: Past, Present and Future.” Raymond A. Smego Jr., M.D., associate dean for educational development and professor of medicine, infectious diseases and global health at The Commonwealth Medical College, will focus on major achievements in global health over the past century, some present disparities and future challenges to the health of populations around the world.

“Notable global health disparities exist, but the public health of world populations continues to improve and offers hope and optimism for the 21st century,” said Dr. Smego.

The Schemel Forum at The University of Scranton is a program of participatory learning experiences aimed at cultivating the intellect and the imagination through study and discussion of classical texts and current policies, from the arts, history and philosophy to technology and theology. Founded in 2006 through generous gifts to the Rev. George Schemel, S.J., Fund, the forum has grown quickly from a handful of informal lectures to a comprehensive enrichment program of study, dialogue, performances and special events. Session fees vary by program.
