East Tennessee: Leading Voices in Public Health

Dr. Daniel Martinez Garcia, a pediatric advisor for Doctors Without Borders, will speak at East Tennessee State University on Monday, March 25, at 6:00 p.m. Eastern, in the Millennium Center ballroom.

In addition to his role in the Medical Department of Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), or Doctors Without Borders, in Geneva, Switzerland, Dr. Garcia is a core member of the organization’s International Pediatric Working Group and a clinical coordinator for the Telemedicine platform. He grew up in both France and Mexico, where he completed his doctor of medicine degree at Mexico National University and pediatric residency training at the National Institute of Pediatrics in Mexico City.

“His experience and perspective are vital to our understanding of some of the world’s most pressing health and public health challenges, especially as they impact children,” said Dr. Randy Wykoff, dean of the College of Public Health.

Dr. Garcia’s presentation, “Children in Disasters,” is part of the Leading Voices in Public Health lecture series and the Justice, Health and Humanities lecture co-sponsored by East Tennessee State University College of Public Health and the Department of Philosophy and Humanities in the College of Arts and Sciences.

The event is free and open to the public. It will also be available via livestream.
