Location: Memorial Union Room 308

The purpose of this workshop is to explore themes of intersectionality affecting people’s health. It will address the different roles and responsibilities people have within our nation, as well as globally. It aims to answer the questions: What is a “basic human right”? Why may others’ opinions of a basic human right possibly prevent people from receiving these so called rights? How can we help those in need? How much help are we responsible for? This workshop is meant to demonstrate how health and well-being have not been prioritized for some communities. Those who will benefit from the session include anyone interested in humanitarian work, social work, health care, and philanthropy.
