Tanner Conference on Human Rights: Conflict, Health, and Healing: The Barbara L. and Norman C.

Our 2015 forum will examine the theme of “Human Rights: Conflict, Health, and Healing.” We will be exploring the long-term health consequences of exposure to conflict and oppression, including effects on veterans, individuals exposed to violent conflict in their youth, and victims of discrimination.  A key focus of the conference will be on “transforming trauma” and human resiliency.  Please see full schedule on our website
