You are invited to join MSH and our partners for two exciting events this month in Washington, DC, and Brooklyn, New York.

On Thursday, Feb. 20, President & CEO Dr. Jonathan D. Quick will join Drs. Ana Langer and Jacqueline Mahon at the Wilson Center in Washington, DC, for a critical discussion on addressing gender-based inequalities in health through a shared maternal health and universal health coverage (UHC) post-2015 sustainable development agenda.

On Thursday, Feb. 27, panelists, including MSH's Director of Strategic Communications Barbara Ayotte and two MSH photo fellows, will discuss using the power of photography to increase global health awareness. Ayotte will also describe the MSH Photography Fellows Program, in partnership with SocialDocumentary.net. A photography exhibition and reception will follow this New York event.
