Northwestern University students have published the Winter 2017 issue of the Northwestern Public Health Review (NPHR) journal. In this issue they focus on public health challenges of forced migration. They contend that basic health access is a human right, regardless of a person’s statehood, and they believe that a better understanding of the health access challenges facing victims of forced migrations is both timely and imperative in light of current global events.
The NPHR was created to provide a platform for students, alumni, professors, physicians, and residents at Northwestern to communicate public health news, projects, histories, and opinions to the public health community. The objective is simple: to stimulate interdepartmental public health discussion and the cross-pollination of public health ideas.
