Planetary Health: Life in Our Changing World

Physicians for Human Rights

Friday, January 11, 2019—Saturday, January 12, 2019, 6:00pm–6:00pm

Class of 1978 Life Sciences Center

Free and open to the public, the Geisel School of Medicine chapter of Physicians for Human Rights and the Nathan Smith Society present “Planetary Health: Life in Our Changing World.” Our aim is to generate a fruitful and in-depth discussion on the multi-disciplinary and reciprocal effects of humans and our environment with a focus on health and human rights on the local and global level. 

Friday night is a screening of the film “Albatross,” and Saturday is an all-day conference. Attend part, or all.

It is our hope that the conference will inspire appreciation of how the changing environment affects us, especially the poorest parts of the world, and what we can do to in response. More so, we hope for participation in the program to empower everyone to contribute to planetary health. We welcome Dartmouth undergraduates, graduate students, and the wider Upper Valley community to join this necessary discussion.

Registration required.
