We are extremely pleased to announce the 2013 Physicians for Human Rights National Student Conference at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, on Saturday, February 2.
Each conference brings together a diverse group of students and professionals that learn from one another, create lasting connections and generate innovative ideas and solutions for the advancement of health social justice. From the dynamic speakers and invigorating discussions, to the ability to network with leaders in the field of human rights, this conference is going to be phenomenal!
Speakers this year will include Dr. Allen Keller of NYU’s Program for Survivors of Torture, Dr. Makini Chisholm-Straker from Sinai’s Libertas clinic for human rights, and Dr. Jack Geiger, one of the founding members of PHR.
We encourage each interested student to fundraise for his or her own registration costs, and other expenses related to attendance (travel/lodging). Although the registration fee for a medical/health profession student is $40, PHR has made provisions to accommodate students with significant financial need; the registration fee will be reduced and calculated based on determination of need. If you feel that you qualify for aid (a reduced conference registration rate), please email us.
