Conversations in Global Health with Steve Davis, President & CEO of PATH
Join us for our Winter 2018 Conversations in Global Health seminar featuring Steve Davis, president and CEO of PATH. In this role, Davis combines his extensive experience as a technology business leader, global health advocate, and social innovator to accelerate great ideas and bring lifesaving solutions to scale. He oversees PATH’s work of driving transformative global health innovation to save and improve lives, reaching 219 million people in 2013. 
Davis’ long-standing commitment to human rights and global development grew from his early work on refugee programs and policies, and from his later focus on Chinese politics and law. He has employed that same passion as a leader and strategist for a range of private and nonprofit companies and international organizations, including as CEO of internet pioneer and global digital media firm Corbis, director of social innovation for McKinsey & Company, and interim CEO of the Infectious Disease Research Institute. Earlier in his career, he practiced law at the international law firm of K&L Gates with a focus on intellectual property. Read more.

Mari Kimura, violin: New and Recent Works
Following CCRMA's Open House, virtuoso composer/violinist/technologist Mari Kimura will present a concert of new and recent works on the CCRMA Stage.

Mari Kimura is at the forefront of violinists who are extending the technical and expressive capabilities of the instrument. As a performer, composer, and researcher, she has opened up new sonic worlds for the violin. Notably, she has mastered the production of pitches that sound up to an octave below the violin’s lowest string without retuning. This technique, which she calls Subharmonics, has earned Mari considerable renown in the concert music world and beyond. She is also a pioneer in the field of interactive computer music, and she has earned international acclaim as a soloist and recitalist in both standard and contemporary repertoire. Read more.

Public Launch of the GSE and STS Historical Mapping of Activism at Stanford
 From rallies against apartheid in South Africa to sit-ins in the president’s office, activism has been a key part of life at Stanford for decades. With support from the Stanford Geospatial Center, the University Archives, and the David Rumsey Map Collection, undergraduate students working with the GSE and STS have been uncovering this fascinating history. On Monday, March 5 from 3:30 to 5 pm, the David Rumsey Map Center will host an event to mark the public launch of the GSE’s mapping project on the history of activism at Stanford. Students and faculty who’ve contributed to the project will present the map to the public and provide a brief tour of the website. After these remarks, a panel of current activists and student leaders active in a variety of issues, including workers’ rights, sexual violence, and racism at campus, will discuss the state of activism at Stanford today.
