Chevron presents “Through The Lens” benefiting the ongoing work of the Baylor College of Medicine International Pediatric AIDS Initiative (BIPAI) at Texas Children’s Hospital. Immerse yourself in a unique, specially-curated exhibit featuring the work of Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist Smiley Pool. Travel to places where survival, compassion and high-quality medical care come together every single day. In 1996, Dr. Mark W. Kline, now physician-in-chief at Texas Children’s, made a trip to Romania that changed his life—and subsequently the lives of hundreds of thousands of children and women. He saw children ravaged by HIV/AIDS, waiting to die because they didn’t have access to the life-saving medication that was readily available in the United States. He developed a plan to change all that, sketched it out on a napkin on his return flight, and established what would later become BIPAI at Texas Children’s. BIPAI is now one of the largest global maternal and child health programs in the world. The impact was immediate and staggering. A team of Global Health Corps physicians was mobilized and within just a few years, children were no longer dying—they were living and thriving. Smiley Pool has captured BIPAI’s life-changing work for 20 years and selected his most awe-inspiring images to exhibit at the “Through The Lens” event. The photographs—most never before seen—tell a story of challenge, hope, triumph, connection and service to some of the world’s most vulnerable children and women. [Organizer's description]
