Cuba -- 10/19 Daypass - Primary Care and Public Health - Lessons Learned
Dr. Cunningham is currently the Associate Dean of Global Health and Director of the Institute for Global Health (IGH) at Michigan State University. He serves as a representative for the College of Osteopathic Medicine on the University Curriculum Committee. He is a graduate of the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine, interned at Brentwood/Cleveland Clinic Hospital, graduated from the Emergency Medicine residency program at Akron General Medical Center, and has a Master’s degree in Health Administrations. Speaker’s Synopsis: Ninety miles separate the U.S. from Cuba, but since the Cuban revolution, the two countries have been worlds apart. The United States embargo, the fall of the U.S.S.R., and the death of Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez have all had major economic impact on the Caribbean island and its ability to progress its standard of living. Although a low income country, the socialist policies of Cuba have made great strides in the delivery of health care to their inhabitants, as well as assisting other countries in need. How does a socialist country with a marginal economy provide the same longevity and infant mortality as the United States health system with all of its technology and resources?
