The Maternal & Child Health Student Organization (MCHSO) 7th annual spring symposium is Thursday, March 3 at the University of South Florida Patel Center. This year’s theme is Human Rights: Women, Mothers & Children.

American Public Health Association President Dr. Camara Phyllis Jones is a social epidemiologist and family physician. Her research focuses on racism in America and how it impacts the health of the nation. This internationally recognized expert on health equity and human rights serves as the keynote speaker for the 2016 symposium.

Women’s rights, mothers’ rights and children’s rights are all human rights. As such, they all play a role in the public’s health. Symposium participants will explore how issues impacting each of these groups, such as human trafficking, immigration, disaster response, racism and more play a role in their overall health.
