Colby welcomed Arachu Castro, the Samuel Z. Stone Chair of Public Health in Latin America at Tulane University’s School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, for the Global Studies Hunt Lecture on March 9. Castro recently completed work on a report on health equity in Latin America and the Caribbean. The report was a joint effort between the Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, where she led the research on it, and UNICEF. In her lecture, Castro discussed her findings in the recent report, including gaps in health equity between women, children and adolescents. She also compared the external causes of these inequities, including income, education, ethnicity and place of residence. David Hunt, pictured in the audience above on the right, the namesake for the lecture and longtime supporter of the Global Studies department at Colby, was present at the event.
