Stephen Lewis lecture, Jan 28, UNCW

On Wed, Jan 28, 2009 7 pm in UNCW's Kenan Auditorium, Stephen Lewis will give a lecture titled “Time to Deliver: Winning the Battle Against Poverty & Disease in the Developing World”.

From UNCW:
Formerly the Special Envoy to UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, Stephen Lewis founded the Stephen Lewis Foundation in Canada, which aims to ease the pain of HIV/AIDS in Africa by funding grassroots projects. In Lewis’ best-selling book, Race Against Time, he tackles the AIDS crisis head on, probing the appalling gap between vision and current reality, while also offering bracingly attainable solutions.

The lecture is part of UNCW's Leadership Lecture Series and is Co-sponsored by UNCW Student Media, Honors Scholars Program and Coastal Carolina UN Association

I am trying to get us a block of seats. As an incentive to attend, if you attend and write a one-page summary of the lecture (as it relates to the economics of growth and development of course), you can earn up to 10 bonus points on your first exam.
