The Banana Slug: Dr. Paul

Dr. Paul

Oct 4, 02:47 PM

I met Dr. Paul Farmer yesterday after he spoke at the Nourse Theater yesterday. He quoted Dr. Jim Kim in regards to the current Ebola Crisis in Western Africa as stating, “We are all Liberians now.” I thought this was a very transcendent way of outlining the cultural and philosophical shift that must occur if we are to solve some of today’s most pressing problems in the world.

I am so excited to share this book with the rest of the members of the San Francisco Public Library!

As I embark upon my early career as a healer and friend to the poor and disenfranchised members of our global community, with the humility of a life-long learner, I regard collaboration as an utmost necessity for global progress. I recognize that as an individual among billions, I must improve, utilize and share my skills and knowledge to maximize my ability to helpfully collaborate. Paul Farmer is my role model in this regard and I feel absolutely honored to have met him last night.

Though the crisis in West Africa looks grim, with forecasts of up to 1.4 million dead by the end of the year, I remain optimistic because transnational cooperation and unification of efforts through strong leadership have the capability to end the pandemic.
