Join MUSC on Friday, February 4th from 9:00AM-5:00PM via Zoom!
This symposium is jointly sponsored by the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) Department of Public Health Sciences and MUSC Center for Global Health. The event will discuss how war and armed conflicts are relentless events, producing devastating effects on the wellbeing of populations, especially the vulnerable (children, refugees, disabled, etc.). Despite the grave effects on populations and its preventable nature, war is still not considered a global or local public health priority issue. This symposium will host a panel of presenters that will deliberate the health crisis of war, highlighting case studies from around the world and its impact on health workers, health facilities, humanitarian work, vulnerable populations, and undertakings of global health research, among the many other impacts.
