Please join us for a roundtable discussion with Obama Scholars Mor Efrat and Isaiah Owolabi on the intersection of healthcare and human rights. Refreshments will be provided.

About the speakers: Mor Efrat serves as Director of the Occupied Palestinian Territories Department at Physicians for Human Rights in Israel.
