We invite you to join the Harvard Club of Cincinnati for a two-in-one exclusive event pairing of a joyful story of improving lives across the ocean with a visit to the dynamic new building led by the UC Office of Research called Digital Futures. Not tethered to any one college or discipline, Digital Futures is UC’s first interdisciplinary research facility where teams of researchers are partnering with industry, government and thought leaders in the community to solve problems that matter.
Dr. Christopher Lewis '96 is a dynamic leader who chooses to make a difference in the lives of people half a world away by marshaling the people and resources around him. Founded more than 10 years ago by Dr. Lewis, Village Life connects those needing a hand-up in 3 villages in Tanzania with those able to share their time and talent such as UC faculty, staff, and students, UC Health providers of clinical care, and passionate leaders from Cincinnati’s private sector. Chris Lewis and Village Life are solving problems that matter.
“I wanted to have an impact on the health of hundreds in a part of the world where there is one doctor for every 33,000 people.” --Dr. Chris Lewis

After the program, you will be invited to tour the Digital Futures Building with Associate VP Programs and Initiatives Jennifer Krivickas.

We strongly encourage you to come out to meet Chris in person and experience the Digital Futures Building for yourself, however, we are offering a virtual option for those who can't make it.
Designed to foster moonshot thinking and high risk-high reward applied R&D, the Digital Futures program of research is fueled by the imagination and expertise of our community of researchers who are partnering with government, industry, and the community to deliver reliable and lasting solutions to the real problems impacting people’s lives.
