Showing of the Documentary “Dare to Dream”
Can one Medical School Change the World?
“Dare to Dream is a 30 minute movie 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.
