Seattle/Cuba Friendship Committee presents:
A summer party and showing of the movie DARE TO DREAM
Can one Medical School Change the World?
Seattle-Cuba Friendship Committee invites you to join us!
DARE TO DREAM is a 30 minute film that tells the story of the largest medical school in the world, the Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM) in Havana, Cuba through the eyes of US students who received full scholarships from the Cuban government with the commitment to practice medicine in under-served communities.
Through the stories of ELAM graduates, we learn the history of this medical school that is revolutionizing healthcare on a global level, graduating more than 26,000 doctors from around the world.
