This two-day symposium, presented by the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society and the Pozen Family Center for Human Rights, will bring interdisciplinary scholars together to ask first whether there is a human right to health care. Symposium participants will also explore how to define a right to health care and then who has the obligation to provide and protect this right.
