The cycling tour is part of Ride for World Health. The cyclists are traveling from San Diego to Washington, D.C., and making stops at major medical centers and community forums to present programs about global health issues such as access to health care, poverty and health care, HIV/AIDS and women's health.
Dr. Jeremy Lazarus, chair of the American Medical Association's Task Force on Health System Reform, will be speaking today at Ohio State University Medical Center.
Lazarus is speaking as part of a Global Health Day program. In addition, medical students nearing the end of a 3,700 mile cross-country cycling tour will be at the event to promote health awareness.
Reporters are invited to attend the event and speak with Lazarus and the riders before they continue their tour on Tuesday. Lazarus will be speaking at 11:30 a.m. in Meiling Hall, 370 W. 9th Avenue, Columbus.
Following Lazarus' address and a lecture by U.S. Army Medical Corps' Dr. Jennifer Junnila, there will be a community health care fair.
