Always dreamed of using your medical skills in humanitarian and disaster zones? Or perhaps you want to find out more about the indirect impact of war and who’s left to pick up the pieces when it comes to civilian casualties, injured children, health workers and medics themselves?
Then we’ve got you sorted with a range of workshops and talks on our next theme…
‘Beyond the Battlefield’ – Working in the ‘Hot Zone’, including military and humanitarian deployments to areas of war and conflict and the impact of conflict.
Join Alex Potter and Pete Reed of Global Response Management, as they examine the impact of the largest urban battle in recent history – Mosul, 2016-17 – on our understandings of both warfare and humanitarian aid. Check out our blog post for more information!
Then, head to the Biosphere to listen to Michael Von Bertele, Director of Aspen Medical, as he tries to address the gap between the number of children injured in conflict zones and the lack of coordinated research into the risk exposure, treatment and long-term recovery of these injured kids.
And there is so much more to discover – just make sure you’re there to see it.
What: ‘Beyond the Battlefield’
