Description

BARRIERS TO HEALTHCARE is a one day event hosted by the Boston College chapter of the national nonprofit organization GlobeMed. GlobeMed at Boston College is partnered with CORD (Chinmaya Organization for Rural Development) Siruvani, a community health organization in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India. We collaborate on projects including sanitation, vaccination, alcoholism awareness, and women’s empowerment.

The conference brings together prominent academics, researchers, and professionals who work in areas related to healthcare, and more generally, access to healthcare. Spanning diverse but related fields, we hope that their voices will be able to weave a detailed portrait of the challenges embedded in public health today. Utilizing their skills and resources in innovative ways, our speakers are at the forefront of efforts to address the needs of vulnerable populations, be they at home or abroad, to eliminate the barriers that impede their access to healthcare.

  • Dr. Philip Landrigan
