Over the course of the year, our chapter has been raising funds to support the work of our partner organization, ASPAT, which serves to educate about TB, advocate for health policy, and ensure basic necessities and psychological therapy for TB patients in Callao, Peru. This Benefit Dinner will be our biggest event of the year, and we hope to raise $4000.00 through donations, a silent auction and raffles. We are targeting our dinner towards professionals in The University of Chicago network. At the dinner, we will have three speakers from the university representing diverse fields (medicine, economics, and public policy) to emphasize the interdisciplinary nature of the Tuberculosis epidemic. Not only do we hope to raise money for ASPAT, we also want to inspire discussion among empowered individuals on campus.
Even a small donation to ASPAT can have a significant impact for the community! ASPAT would appreciate anything you can donate!
