Experience global health in Seattle

If you’re in Seattle this summer, you can see how PATH is working to improve health and ride up to the top of the Space Needle all in the same afternoon.

Through August 19 at Seattle Center, our stories and technologies are featured at the Global Health Experience exhibit, which highlights Washington State’s strengths in global health. You can see what the exhibit’s all about in this video produced by the Seattle Channel.

At the exhibit, you’ll take an experiential journey through the stories of real people from four countries:

  • In the Tanzanian village of Nanga, the rainy season begins. Will Mande’s children survive the mosquitoes and the malaria they bring?
  • In Honduras, Ishmael is facing a life with diabetes.
  • In Uganda, Aisha shares the story of her mother’s struggle with cervical cancer.
  • And in India, a village comes together to make sure a baby is born safely.

Discover how these people and more are finding hope—with the help of PATH and our colleagues in global health. You’ll also see many of our technologies up close, from a radical new way of storing vaccines to the NASA-inspired antishock garment. The exhibit culminates in the Pathways to Global Health activity tent, filled with hands-on activities from more than 30 global health organizations.

The free exhibit is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays in the Next Fifty Plaza at Seattle Center, 305 Harrison Street, Seattle. That’s right behind the Monorail, which you can ride after your Space Needle trip.
