GREENWICH, Conn. — Barbara Pierce Bush visited the hometown of her grandfather, President George H.W. Bush, as she moderated a panel discussion on the state of global healthcare at this weekend’s Greenwich Film Festival.
The question-and-answer session followed the opening night screening of “Bending the Arc,” which was awarded the prize of “Best Documentary Feature” at the film festival. This year’s theme was “Make An Impact.”
It documents the 30-year journey by Partners in Health to bring health care to the poorest parts of the world — from saving lives one at a time in a rural Haitian village to joining the fights against tuberculosis, AIDS and Ebola.
