Event description

Description

5:30 p.m. Pre-Event Reception

6:30 p.m. Program

In 1995, as a recent medical school graduate, Dr. Samantha Nutt worked as a field volunteer with UNICEF in Baidoa, Somalia, alias the “City of Death.” Impassioned and emboldened by what she witnessed, she became an advocate for children’s and women’s rights in war zones around the world.

She founded the international humanitarian organization War Child (North America—Canada and US) in 1999. War Child invests in grassroots operations aimed at improving women’s and children’s access to education, justice and opportunity while reducing poverty through skills training programs. The organization also works toward preventing children from being used in war.

A leading authority on war, current affairs, and international policy as they relate to children, Dr. Nutt is a fearless and respected humanitarian. Her critically-acclaimed debut book, Damned Nations: Greed, Guns, Armies, and Aid (2011), combines original research with personal stories that span her career of hands-on care for children and families in crisis regions.

Damned Nations will be available for purchase at this event. Immediately following her remarks, Dr. Nutt will be available to sign copies of the book.
