Physicians for Human Rights National Student Conference

Friday, November 7, 2014

8:00am – 5:00pm

Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) is hosting its  National Student Conference at the Alpert Medical School from November 7-8, 2014.

The keynote speech features  Doctor Arash Alaei and Doctor Kamiar Alae, two doctors from Iran who were incarcerated for their work in researching AIDS and advocating HIV/AIDS patients. In part because of PHR's efforts, they were released. Additional panels will address topics such as medical neutrality in Syria, gender violence in conflict zones, and torture/health care in prisons. Students will share research and work they have done on human rights/global health/social justice in a poster presentation.

Register online before November 1 (No fee for Brown students).
