From the film's website:
"The West has positioned itself as the protagonist of development, giving rise to a vast multi-billion dollar poverty industry — the business of doing good has never been better. Yet the results have been mixed, in some cases even catastrophic, and leaders in the developing world are growing increasingly vocal in calling for change. Drawing from over 200 interviews filmed in 20 countries, Poverty, Inc. unearths an uncomfortable side of charity we can no longer ignore."

ATLAS Summit 2016 @ Freedom Fest: What About the Poor? How to Win the Healthcare Debate Without Selling Your Soul

Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas NV 3667 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV

Dr. Beth Haynes, BRI executive director delivered a talk at the 2016 ATLAS Summit @ Freedom Fest, What About the Poor? How to Win the Debate Without Selling Your Soul.

In order to engage those who are skeptical but potentially persuadable to free market ideas, we need to answer concerns about what happens to society's most disadvantaged in a powerful, truthful and compelling way. This is a major concern of young people, who frequently have a strong desire to help others, but who are typically economically ignorant and think with their hearts. In order to reach them we need to address their concerns without compromising on our fundamental principles. Come learn what tactics are working with students and are applicable to a much broader audience.

UC Irvine School of Medicine—PANEL DISCUSSION: Health Disparities are Issues of Poverty

Tamkin Auditorium, UC Irvine School of Medicine 825 Health Sciences Rd, Irvine, CA

Poverty is challenging enough; time and experience have revealed that good intentions to eradicate or alleviate suffering may in certain cases make problems associated with poverty and health disparities worse. This cruel irony is discussed Michael Matheson Miller’s documentary Poverty, Inc., and has been experienced by others first hand. 

BRI UC-Irvine Poverty, Inc. movie screening Faith Njoku (L), UC Irvine-BRI chapter president at a Poverty, Inc. film screening last year.

Health Disparities are issues of poverty. What are possible solutions?

Join us as we welcome a panel of second year medical students from the University of California Irvine School of Medicine who participated in a medical mission trip in June 2016 to Tanzania, Panama and Indonesia. They will highlight the economic, social and health issues they encountered, adding to our understanding of the global aid business, global poverty, and the impact of both on health disparities. At this student-led panel discussion, we hope to ignite a rich, flexible conversation by will providing clear examples and practical solutions of this phenomenon.
