A Message from Partners In Health
 On Monday, September 12 2011, we were thrilled to realize an effort we launched earlier this year to bring a topic of global impact to our local community in DC.
 

Our Friends at Partners In Health asked us to share this message with you:
 

Thank you to all who attended the HBE event with Paul. It's heartening to know that so many people are invested in seeing Haiti build back better. Haiti After the Earthquake is a tool we can all use to educate friends and family about the challenges and opportunities facing Haiti in the months and years ahead. We hope that you'll share the book widely.
 

As advocates for Haiti, we'd like to keep you informed about Partners In Health's progress on the ground. Visit the link below to sign up for updates from PIH and to invite friends and family to join the fight for global health equity: www.pih.org/stay-up-to-date
 

And, be sure to watch the full event on Book TV starting this weekend! Click here to get the schedule. http://www.booktv.org/Program/12816/Haiti+After+the+Earthquake.aspx


HBE Speaker Muhammad Yunus to be Featured at Global Microcredit Summit-Spain
The HBE team is a big fan of microfinance and the organizations that help fund this important global effort. Our two public book events with Dr. Yunus have supported Fonkoze and the Grameen Foundation. We recently found out that Dr. Yunus will be one of more than 300 speakers at the 2011 Global Microcredit Summit to be held November 14-17, 2011 in Valladolid, Spain.

To view a complete list of the workshops and confirmed panelists, and to have all your registration-related questions answered, go to the website at http://globalmicrocreditsummit2011.org/.  If you are lucky enough to be in Spain in November.. check it out!

The Inn is a private, non-profit, family-centered residence for pediatric patients and 59 families who are participating in groundbreaking treatments and biomedical research at NIH.
 

As you can imagine, with so many families using the kitchen to prepare family meals with special dietary and other restrictions, the hub of The Inn is well used. A campaign to raise funds to renovate the kitchen, in partnership with The Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show in November, is underway. Included is an opportunity to meet, mingle with and hear Paula Deen in conversation with Cokie Roberts at the Washington Convention Center on November 5th. HBE will be donating signed copies of We are Our Mother's Daughters by Cokie Roberts to the first 100 who purchase tickets. Email Fern Stone at The Children's Inn to get more information - stonefj@mail.nih.gov.
