Maltz Museum Forum Looks at Medical Responses to Disasters

Wed 2/21 @ 7PM

After an especially bad hurricane season that hit hard in Texas, Florida and especially Puerto Rico, disaster responses have been in the news and at the top of people’s minds. Among other things, they shone a glaring light on inequality and injustice in society, and the callousness displayed by some elements in our country.

The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage takes a lens to one sector’s contribution in “Times of Trouble: The Medical Community’s Response to Humanitarian Crises.” The program will feature Dr. Nancy G. Wolf of the American-Austrian Foundation’s Open Medical Institute; and brothers Zac Ponsky, founder of Medworks and Lee Ponsky, founder of MedWish International; and Todd Ponsky of Akron Children’s Hospital. They’ll be talking about how each of their organizations responds to crises.

It’s $12; $6 for Maltz Museum members.
