Working with Syrian Refugees:
Medical and Psychological Implications for Self- Care
Friday, October 27, 2017 from 9:00 am – 4:30 pm
With the Syrian conflict now in its seventh year, the war has created one of the biggest crises since World War II. Five million Syrians are currently displaced outside of their home country, and 13.5 million people inside Syria are in need of aid. This one day conference will focus on the challenges confronted and strategies devised to provide health and mental health care to Syrians within Syria and to those displaced in neighboring countries.
