We’re looking forward to meeting you in person at PHR’s National Conference at Boston University Medical School on February 20, 2010!
To have the best possible Conference experience:
- Read the Health and Human Rights literature we have posted on the Conference website. These articles represent some of the foundational literature published by pioneering thinkers in the field, as well as more recent publications that highlight current developments and consider the future of health and human rights.
- Respond to the articles by commenting online. Share your thoughts and see what other participants are saying.
- Present at the Expo! Does your school offer Health and Human Rights Education (HHRE)? Inspire other Chapters by sharing your school’s approach to HHRE. This can be a course for credit, reading or film discussion group, or extracurricular activity, and it doesn’t need to be something that you or even your PHR chapter has started.
- Bring answers to the following questions to the Conference:
- What kind of HHRE initiative would work best at my school? What do I envision as the ideal HHR curriculum at my school in two or three years?
- What faculty members are our allies in this process?
- How does curriculum get changed at my school? Who has influence on those decisions, and who has the final authority? Which offices and individuals should we consult?
- What resources do we have and what do we need?
Please contact me at hlauber[at]phrusa[dot]org if you have any questions or need help brainstorming!
Make sure to arrive early on Friday night to attend the Regional Socials. Your Regional Mentor will be in touch with you soon with details. Also, check out the map of Boston University School of Medicine’s campus to familiarize yourself with the area!
We look forward to meeting you soon!
