LLU Chancellor speaks at World Affairs Council of Inland Southern California

Richard H. Hart, MD, DrPH, chancellor of Loma Linda University, gave a special presentation to members of the World Affairs Council of Inland Southern California.

The presentation was the highlight of International Education Week and was held November 15 at the historic Mission Inn, Riverside.

The topic of Dr. Hart’s talk was “Afghanistan: a close-up view from the Inland Empire.”

During the evening, Dr. Hart gave a history of Afghanistan and Loma Linda University’s involvement there. This was followed by a slideshow and a question and answer session.

The World Affairs Council of Inland Southern California is the premier forum presenting national and world leaders for discussions about global issues. Founded in 1964 by presidents of area colleges and universities, along with business leaders, the council is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit educational organization. It is one of 11 active councils in California and the third oldest.

Previous programs have included presentations by Jerry Lewis, U.S. congressman; Gaddi Vasquez, director, U.S. Peace Corps; Edward Peck, former U.S. ambassador to Iraq; and Bryan Whitman, deputy assistant secretary of defense.
