Center for Middle East Studies

Events

The Center hosts frequent events, many co-sponsored by academic departments, research centers, and student groups across the University of Denver. Our aim is twofold: to promote spirited discussion and research on the Middle East at DU, and to make the best and brightest scholars, policymakers, and intellectuals from around the world available and accessible to the university community.

To accomplish these goals, the Center hosts an annual thematic conference, lecture series, panel discussions, and cultural events. You can find out more about all of these here.

Wednesday, September 3 | 5:30 - 7:30 PM
Ben M. Cherrington Hall | Sié Chéou-Kang Center, Room 150

Sarah Woznick is an intensive care nurse who left the University of Colorado Hospital in January 2014 to work with Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in Gaza. Israel's Operation Protective Edge began on July 8, one day before what should have been the last day of her assignment. Sarah decided to stay to support the MSF team during the Israeli military campaign against Gaza

In this presentation, co-sponsored by the Center for Middle East Studies and the Global Health Affairs Program, Woznick will describe her experiences working with the MSF team in response to a humanitarian crisis. For more information, visit the Facebook event page. You can learn more about Sarah Woznick, her experience with MSF, and the Gaza crisis in a blog post she wrote in July.

The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served before the presentation begins.
