Global Health and Development Cause Area Meetup

March 13, 2022 @ 11:00 am - April 10, 2022 @ 12:30 pm

Open-ended gathering for those passionate or curious about global health and development with an Effective Altruism lens

Get together IN PERSON with others based in the DC area interested in applying Effective Altruism ideas to global health and development. This is part of a monthly series of gatherings. You’re welcome to join whether you are the USAID Administrator or you once saw a Smile Train ad on TV.

The gathering will include:

  1. Optionally, if a volunteer emerges: a short talk or a facilitated discussion of a blog post short enough that we can each read it in the first 10 minutes of the call (no homework required!) Subject to confirmation: there is likely to be a discussion of cash transfers and their downsides.
  2. A “rotating chair” discussion, where each attendee guides the discussion for an equal share of the session. (You can opt out if you prefer)
  3. Snacks
  4. SpaceTeam?

Weather permitting, we’ll meet at Kalorama Park. Weather forbidding, Kat will host at his nearby apartment.

Please email Kat at katriel.friedman@gmail.com if have suggestions for future sessions,or anything else.
