Izmir-Elon University-CRHP Partnership moving forward

EXPO 2020

Izmir-Elon University-CRHP Partnership moving forward:  Update

The Izmir [Turkey]-Elon University/Periclean Scholars-CRHP partnership has moved forward rapidly this summer.  There will be an official visit by members of the the EXPO2020 Committee from Izmir, Turkey to the Comprehensive Rural Health Project (CRHP) in Jamkhed, India on 27-28 August.  The Izmir team will be at CRHP to take part in and to film the grand opening ceremonies of the “Medical Training Centre.”  The video they create will be a part of the public presentation to the Bureau of International Expositions (BIE) in Paris this November, just before final voting to determine the host city for EXPO2020.

In addition to being hosted by the senior staff of CRHP -most prominently Dr. Shobha Arole and Ravi Arole- and the CRHP Village Health Workers, the Izmir team will also meet and work with Dr. Martin Kamela, Mentor for the Periclean Scholars Class of 2012 and Alyssa Dilly, the second Periclean Fellow now spending a year at CRHP as an intern.

Live now on the Izmir EXPO2020 web site is the video -in Turkish- that was shown in Paris November, 2012.  This video represents major efforts from the Class of 2012 and, in the end, a $100,000 investment for the new training facility on the CRHP campus.  Here is the video:
