“Doesn’t everyone deserve a chance at a good life?”

Jim Kim grew up in Iowa and describes his childhood experience as deeply American. He is the current president of the World Bank and a physician-anthropologist who co-founded Partners In Health (PIH), an organization dedicated to community-focused health care programs in Haiti. He served as director of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) HIV/AIDS department and then former Chair of the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School. In 2009, Kim became president of Dartmouth College, becoming the first Asian American to assume the top job at an Ivy League institution.

In honor of Georgetown’s Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we were proud to welcome Dr. Kim as the keynote speaker of Georgetown’s inaugural Asian Diversity Dialogue, which was held on Saturday, October 28th.
