The Institute for Race, Justice, and Community Engagement in conjunction with Student Life (TP/SS) presents:

"Dare to Dream"

The year is 2001. George W. Bush is in office. US/Cuba relations are at their worst -- the blockade is tighter than ever and US travelers to Cuba face jail time fines by the US government. Eight young people from across the US begin the adventure of a lifetime -- to follow their dreams to study medicine -- in Cuba.

This film tells the story of the largest medical school in the world, the Latin American Medical School, in Havana, Cuba through the eyes of US students who received scholarships with the commitment to return home and practice medicine in under-served communities in the US.

Through the stories of graduates of ELAM, as it is known in Spanish, we learn the history of this medical school that is revolutionizing healthcare on a global level. We also see the promise these doctors represent for their communities.

What happens when a country dares to dream that young people can change the world?

When: November 29, 1-3 p.m.
Where: Commons 211, Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus
