The North American Refugee Health Conference (NARHC) is the largest refugee health conference of its kind globally and offers access to recent research, best practices in refugee health and a great opportunity for networking.

The Honourable Bob Rae, lawyer, human rights advocate, and former politician will speak about the atrocities he witnessed and the plight of the Rohingya as they flee from Burma to Bangladesh. Dr. Maya Prabhu, psychiatrist, and lawyer from Yale University will deliver a plenary talk on trauma and resiliency, explaining how those who support vulnerable refugee populations can support healing.
