Student Forum for Health and Social Justice 2011
On Sunday, September 25th, Alpha Epsilon Delta helped to organize the Student Forum for Health and Social Justice along with a group of summer interns from Partners in Health. This conference brought together student activists and speakers from many disciplines to discuss global advocacy efforts and the ways in which students can access and affect the mechanisms that influence change in global health.
Many prominent speakers from Partners in Health and its praxis network joined the forum and lent their views to the conference. The forum featured a health-experts panel, a student panel, and breakout sessions. From large scale policy change efforts to every day individual activism, panelists explored pertinent issues in the field of global health.
