The diseases that afflict the poorest of the poor are often neglected by the global health community. Virtually no one in United States or Europe suffers from Guinea worm disease, or river blindness or lymphatic filariasis, diseases that mire their victims in extreme poverty. Ambassador Peters will talk about the campaign against neglected tropical diseases, using examples from the work of The Carter Center.

Ambassador Peters will speak from 12 noon to 1:00 p.m. in the Recital Hall of the Covenant Fine Arts Center at Calvin College and again from 6:00 to 7:15 p.m. in Aquinas College's Performing Arts Center.
