Chai Time: Health Disparities "Health as a Human Rights"
November 8, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Mānoa Campus, ACCESS Lounge (Dean Hall, Room 5/6)
Health and peace are closely linked. One cannot have one without the other. Although health and peace are desirable conditions, we human beings often thwart our best intentions to achieve and maintain them.
We, health professionals, can promote peace in many ways and facilitate this work by demonstrating our values, vision, and leadership. Above all, health is a human right, every individual has a legal right to maintain a certain level of health.
Guest speaker: Dr. Opal Buchthal, a professor from the Office of Public Health Studies and a specialist in Social and Behavioral Health Sciences.
