An opportunity to learn about Cuba’s successful public health system and
how the United States and Cuba can learn from one another.

The public health system in Cuba is one of the world leaders in prevention,
containing disease outbreaks, and health promotion. Their health promotion
is some of the best in the world including low infant mortality and life
expectancy.

Public health leaders in Cuba and the United States are initiating the two
way exchange of ideas, innovations, and initiatives to enhance the health
of both countries. We’ll explore public health interventions such as
community health workers, prenatal care, dealing with outbreaks of diseases
such as Ebola and the Zika virus.

Sponsored by the Minnesota Cuba Committee, Plymouth Congregational Church,
and Witness for Peace Midwest

*On Thursday, May 26,* Dr. Hernández Gómez will also be speaking at the
