About the Event
In the age of the Internet, any of us can reach just about anyone in our networks almost instantaneously (most of the time), no matter where they are on the planet. This also enables us to do humanitarian work which was heretofore less feasible. Dr. Gerber will discuss the portfolio of exciting opportunities that Chemists Without Borders are able to pursue as a result of the generous volunteerism of our members – chemists and non-chemists alike – and the benefits of the Information Age.
