A Conversation with Dr. Paul Farmer and Fr. Gustavo Gutiérrez

Dr. Paul Farmer, Chair, Department of Global Health and Social Medicine, Harvard Medical School, and Cofounder, Partners In Health; Fr. Gustavo Gutiérrez, OP, John Cardinal O'Hara Professor of Theology, University of Notre Dame. Introduced by Sister Barbara Reid.

From Port-au-Prince to Lima to Boston, much of the world is experiencing rising levels of inequality. Among some of the poorest communities in the world, Dr. Paul Farmer, as a physician and anthropologist, and Fr. Gustavo Gutiérrez, as a theologian and priest, have worked towards their shared goal of building a better and more just world for the poor. Today, both are internationally recognized for their pragmatic approaches to global health and social justice. What has influenced their life’s work? How can societies advance the cause of their most marginalized citizens? Join Dr. Farmer, a leading figure in global health, and his mentor Fr. Gustavo, a noted theologian widely known as the father of liberation theology for a discussion about inequality, social justice, medicine, and lessons from their lifelong experiences of living and working with the poor.
