November 19th, 2011, Hamline University’s Wesley Center held the first
Imagine No Malaria Education Festival! The focus of this event was to
generate awareness and education about malaria, as well as address other
global health concerns like hunger and HIV/AIDs in Africa.
Leia Williams, Field Coordinator for Imagine No Malaria, was our keynote speaker and talked about malaria in Africa, what the campaign is doing, and led a discussion on how the Hamline community could help. She was joined by Lilosa Msimbe, a graduate student from Zimbabwe, who shared her personal experience with Malaria and the healthcare system in Africa. After the speakers’ presentations students participated in the “Education Bazaar” where they played educational games and listened to student led presentations. The event culminated in an immersive “Indoor Sleep-Out” experience and reflective writing activity hosted by the Wesley Center’s Imagine No Malaria program coordinator, Daniel Campbell, who holds an MFA in Creative Writing. See below for a complete schedule of events.We would like to thank everyone involved with this event: our guest speakers, International & Off-Campus Programs, Hamline African Student Association, InterVaristy Christian Fellowship, Peer Education, Phi Beta Sigma, PRIDE Black Student Alliance, Students Today, Leaders Forever and Hamline Church, United Methodist. Without their help we wouldn’t have been able to create such a successful, memorable and impactful event for Hamline students, the community, and Africa. Nearly 40 students, staff, and guests were in attendance and approximately $350 was raised for for Imagine No Malaria!
