Wednesday, September 18 - 12:00 PM

In rabbi and social justice advocate Lee Bycel's new book, Refugees in America, eleven individuals from different countries tell their own stories of fleeing danger in their homelands to seek refuge and build new lives in the US. Rabbi Bycel draws on these refugees' personal experiences to help reveal the real people at the center of today's debates about immigration. This Medical Center Hour explores why and how the situations and stories of refugees should matter to health professionals—students and seasoned practitioners alike—seeking to care and advocate for these newcomers, increasing prospects for their good health and successful resettlement.

Co-presented with the Generalist Scholars Program, in observance at UVA of Primary Care Week

A production of the Center for Health Humanities and Ethics at the University of Virginia School of Medicine, Medical Center Hour is held September through March on Wednesdays, 12:00-1:00 pm, in the Pinn Hall Conference Center Auditorium (unless otherwise noted):
