If you think a master's in supply chain management from Boise State sounds a bit obscure, try a master's of science in tropical public health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. That's the degree Michel Gabaudan, speaker at the City Club of Boise's program Protecting Refugees through Resettlement: US/UN Partnership, graduated with in 1980. That degree has led Gabaudan to a successful 25-year career with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
Currently, Gabaudan is working as the UNHCR regional representative for the United States and Caribbean. On Thursday, Feb. 25, Gabaudan will be joined at the Grove Hotel by chair JoAnn Thiry and moderator Marcia Franklin.
If you can't make it for lunch, head to the First Presbyterian Church at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 25, to catch Gabaudan speak again at a forum hosted by the International Rescue Committee.
