Public Health in Pictures – 2017

We recently hosted an event that featured powerful speakers and inspiring art as part of our annual Public health matters  series.  This year’s event focused on “Public health  in pictures – through the eyes of refugee migration”.

Featured speakers included Dr. Samer Attar of Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine who spoke about his work in Aleppo, Syria, and Professor. Juliet Sorensen of  Northwestern Pritzker School of Law who talked about her work with refugees in Lebanon. Our final speaker, Dr. John Daugherty of the University of Illinois, commented on the amazing work of medial illustration students at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Northwestern Students  and students  from the UIC BVIS program collaborated to provide Art illustrations for both this symposium and our print issue.

We have reproduced the art gallery from the event here!
