The Ohio State University College of Medicine: BRI Intro Meeting & Movie Screening — Poverty, Inc.

Meiling Hall, The Ohio State University 370 W 9th Ave, Columbus, OH, United States

Poverty, Inc. — The Movie

The OSUMC BRI chapter is proud to screen Poverty, Inc. to students and faculty of the School of Medicine. It is a bold look at "the business of doing good." Please join us for refreshments and lively discussion following the film. We will also be discussing Benjamin Rush Institute, why we have a Chapter at OSUMC, and what the benefits of membership are.

All are welcome, and RSVPs are appreciated to ensure enough refreshments for all.

BRI Poverty Inc documentaryy
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."
