Tara Benedict gives a tour to the Ministers

A group of Ministers of Health and Education from all over the world came to Harvard for the annual conference of the Harvard Ministerial Leadership Program. Launched in 2012, the Ministerial Program is a joint initiative of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, and the Harvard Graduate School of Education. This collaborative approach supports health, education, and finance ministers to pursue ambitious human development goals to better realize their countries’ prospects for sustainable development, particularly among nations where the demographic dividend has the potential to boost economic progress and lift whole generations out of poverty. Tara Benedict of the Marshal's Office gave them a tour of Harvard Yard on the second day of the program.  Photo credits: Neal Hamberg
