Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

March 23: Hoosiers Fighting AIDS in Kenya

Dr. Robert Einterz, Dean for International Programs, Indiana University School of Medicine and Director, Indiana University-Moi University Partnership

When: Wednesday, March 23 7:00-9:00 PM

Where: Marian College, Allison Mansion

Sponsored by Franciscan Center for Global Studies Speaker Series

Many of you know about the collaboration between the Indiana University School of Medicine and Moi University Faculty of Health Sciences. Fran Quigley’s excellent article in NUVO in 2003 brought this program to light. Begun in Eldoret Kenya in 1990 as an exchange of faculty and students, today it is a pioneer leader in HIV/AIDS care, prevention, and research for all of sub-Saharan Africa. You really should visit the program’s website. In fact, this program has inspired me to think in a new way about local-to-local solutions for global problems. Hear about the program from Bob Einterz, Dean for International Affairs and Professor of Clinical Medicine at Indiana University School of Medicine. He has directed the partnership between Indiana University and Moi University Faculty of Health Sciences, Kenya since its inception in 1990. Over the last several years, he has overseen the development and expansion of one of the largest HIV treatment and prevention programs in sub-Saharan Africa. Dr. Einterz also practices internal medicine and directs the Westside Community Health Center in Indianapolis. Dr. Einterz obtained his BA in chemistry from Wabash College and his MD from Indiana University.

This is open to the public, and you ought to go.

  • April 1: Another example of local-to-local solutions for global problems is the sister city program Indianapolis has with Cologne, Germany. Sven Schumacher will discuss it at the Butler Transatlantic conference.
  • April 21: Yet another take on the idea that we Hoosiers can do something significant to help resolve global problems could come up during the discussion about Indiana-European relations at Sagamore Institute.
