You are invited to join us for a student-led symposium on veteran health on Friday, April 5, 2019 from 1pm-5pm. This symposium is open to the public and will be held at The Bear Cave at UC Riverside. Parking will be free to the public, parking directions TBD.

The symposium will showcase the voices of deported veterans through their own photos and words. How has deportation impacted their health? What are some of the things they want to communicate to policymakers? View the world through the lens of veterans who find themselves barred from the country they risked their lives for.

We will be joined by distinguished guest lecturer, Dr. Jeffrey L. Brown, of Cornell University. Dr. Brown is a leader in the field of veteran health. His lecture will detail the veteran experience and how communities can support veteran mental and physical health.



Our interactive speaking panel will include representatives from Project Refit, Deported Veteran Support House, and a UCR student veteran. 

From the UC Berkeley School of Business, the Judith Lee Stronach Baccalaureate Prize-winner Alfredo Figueroa will present on his history working with deported veterans as well as solutions to address this issue at multiple levels.  

Attendance and parking are free! 

Food, beverages, and coffee will be served. 

Cost: Free
