Symposium on the Ethics of International Help will be June 8 & 9, 2017 in Minneapolis

The Learning Abroad Center at the University of Minnesota is proud to co-host the first Symposium on the Ethics of Help June 8 & 9, 2017 in Minneapolis with the Health Careers Center of the University of Minnesota and G.A.S.P. (The Working Group on Global Activities by Students at Pre-Health Levels).

The symposium will explore the ethical complexities of volunteering and interning in international health care settings. College students engage in philanthropic health care among vulnerable populations, usually in settings unfamiliar to them. They are well-intended students who give their time in hopes of making a difference, and to explore skills in new settings. Learn how to assess programs, learn which characteristics and activities make programs okay or not okay, how to work with onsite partners to define the limitations of student activities, explore liability implications, etc.
