    Summit to highlight football’s positive impact

    Football provides a range of benefits to society, producing identifiable results in areas such as health, education, collaboration and community building. Importantly, the game also possesses the power to mobilize people and energize programs that offer direct impact.

    Guests at the CONCACAF Sports Summit -- Transformation Through Partnership -- on October 22, in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands, will hear from a trio of speakers with global expertise in this critical sphere during a session titled ‘Football’s Positive Impact In Society’.

    As Senior Advisor to the Executive Director of UNAIDS, Dr. Djibril Diallo helps advance the priority of universal access to HIVA/AIDS prevention, treatment, care and support. FIFA Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jiri Dvorak has vast experience in the broad issue of health and football.  Mike Geddes, Managing Director of Street Football World USA, will address the game’s potential for bringing about positive social change.

    In another summit session, entitled ‘Football as an Influential Agent for Positive Change’, The Hon. Kenneth Howard Randolph Horton, the Speaker of the House of Assembly of Bermuda, will talk about how the game can help bring about progress for communities. Before his political career, Mr. Horton played professionally with the storied New York Cosmos in the North American Soccer League.
