On June 17th Dr. Patrick Webb joined an elite panel of hunger-fighters to speak at the National Press Club, along with the President of Honduras, Juan Orlando Hernandez. Drs. Catherine Bertini, Shenggen Fan, and Patrick Webb discussed the current status of global hunger and took questions from the audience- many of whom had come from different states and were of various educational backgrounds- some were still students! PUSH, or Presidents United to to Solve Hunger, had gathered this small panel together to meet and discuss the interactions universities are having with those suffering from hunger as well as the potential impacts of these educational institutions in terms of hunger solution.
