The Health and Human Rights Conference has run annually for the past 15 years. Wholly student-organized, the conference is tailored to student participants. We host a range of students from a wide variety of faculties, including arts, science, law, medicine, nursing, occupational therapy, and physiotherapy. In the past, we have welcomed speakers such as Samantha Nutt, the Hon. Charlie Angus, Albert Schumacher, Jacalyn Duffin, Beverley Chalmers, and many more. In 2010, the conference was awarded the Queen’s University Human Rights Initiative Award.
This year’s conference is titled Conflict, Security, and Health and will be taking place on October 21-22nd, 2016.
