Absolute Poverty: Surviving on $2 per day

Mike Cooper introduced our speaker Kent Olson. Kent is a Professor Emeritus from the Applied Economics Department at the University of Minnesota.  He worked mainly in farm management here in the U.S. and around the world.  He retired as Associate Director of the Extension Center for Community Vitality which focused on the development of communities in Minnesota.  He also is the Vice President of Iringa Hope.

Kent shared facts and insight on the poverty levels in the US and around the World. Poverty affects 10% of the world population approximately 780,000,000 individuals and with the impact of COVID-19 this rate should rise within the next few years.

Speaker: Michael Angelo Caruso
Amazing First Impressions.....Why The First 15 Seconds Matter More Than You Think."
Michael has delivered thousands of presentations and keynote speeches on the subjects of leadership, selling, and customer service to businesses and Rotary groups around the world.
Speakers Dr. Laura Niedernhofer and Dr. Paul Robbins from the University of Minnesota. They spoke on aging. 10,000 people turn 65 every day in America. By 2030, the number of individuals aged 65 and older will exceed those under 20. This is the greatest biomedical challenge we are facing today given that old age is the greatest risk factor for most chronic diseases. Bold and new approaches are needed.
