One hundred percent Brazilian and Bahian, but always connected with the world. This is Escola Bahiana de Medicina e Saúde Pública who celebrated, last Tuesday, May 31, in a special live, broadcast on his YouTube channel, the 70 years of a history that is based on the tradition of innovating. The night featured a speech by the dean, Dr. Maria Luisa Carvalho Soliani, and an interview and show with the Bahian artist Carlinhos Brown.
In her opening words, Dean Maria Luisa Soliani, once again, invited participants and the public to reflect on the responsibility of citizenship, resisting injustices and inequalities. She made gifts such as prof. Humberto de Castro Lima, honorary president of the Foundation Bahiana for Science Development and its first general coordinator. Alongside him, educator Edgar Morin was also remembered and his famous motto: "The most important thing in education is to teach understanding, to put yourself in the other's shoes", quoted the dean. Finally, although Maria Luisa Carvalho Soliani has expressed a critical analysis of the neoliberal system currently in force in societies around the world, she ended her words with an invitation to celebrate: "Let's celebrate because we still have the capacity to be indignant. We are alive! celebrate, because we know we can act and we will act. We built an institution that fills us with pride, dedicated to two incredible activities: health and education, which offer us, every day, the opportunity to be better people, better professionals, best learners in life".
The second moment was also a call to think, with the guest of the night, the musician and composer Carlinhos Brown, who brought a little of his history, through a light chat, however full of complexities, mediated by the Development coordinator of People, Luiza Ribeiro. "Health as a desire cannot individualize us to the point of provoking such violence that we see today", warned the artist. The artist also spoke of the importance of education as the world's great path to success.
The night ended with an emblematic show specially prepared by the artist for all collaborators, students, teachers, alumni and guests of the Bahiana. The repertoire featured popular songs since the beginning of his career, such as "Meia-Lua Inteira" (1989), "Much Thank You Axé" (2009) and "Tantinho" (2014). public through posts that were shared on their personal profiles and published on the company's Instagram Bahiana.
