This US State Department-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is for 14 women's health professionals from Egypt, Japan, Lesotho, Malaysia, Marshall Islands, Morocco, Nigeria, Philippines, Russia, Trinidad and Tobago, United Arab Emirates (UAE), and the West Bank, who will be visiting Detroit to examine Global Women's Health Issues.
The delegation's program in Detroit, MI will provide an opportunity to learn about breast cancer awareness and support, culturally sensitive women’s health care for minority community, and state and local public health programs and women’s health care clinics.
A lot of people spend half their lives to get the opportunity to meet the people that we met in just 10 days [in Detroit]. This concentration of knowledge and resources brought me one step closer to being global.
The opportunity to welcome and work with international delegations visiting Detroit provides a very rich experience. To be engaged in this work is significant and very rewarding. The world is becoming smaller every day and Global Ties Detroit contributes greatly in building strong bridges with people and nations across the globe.
