Inaugural Lecture Features Award-winning Humanitarian

Inaugural Lecture Features Award-winning Humanitarian
Danielle Butin

Danielle Butin, executive director of the Afya Foundation, spoke at the inaugural Maria Gervasio Cura Personalis Lecture in April.

Butin founded Afya — a medical supply recovery organization based in New York — in 2007. Over the past nine years, she has led efforts to ship $26 million worth of recovered medical supplies to 58 African, Caribbean, Latin American and Asian nations. The organization received a 2015 Clinton Global Citizen Award in recognition of its response to the Ebola epidemic in Africa, and in 2014, the New York State Senate recognized Butin as a woman of distinction.

The Cura Personalis Lecture is named for the late Maria Gervasio, a 2014 graduate of the Panuska College of Professional Studies’ Occupational Therapy program. During her five years at the University, her dedication to social justice and the empowerment of all people inspired many.
