Today at 7 PM - 9 PM
Barnard College-Columbia University, Millbank Hall, Ella Weed Room (223)

In light of the boom in media attention on Syria's escalating war, and 
the plethora of narratives, opinions and "expert views" resulting from 
this, we believe the time is ripe for a forum that allows stories from 
the ground to get amplified.

Join us at Columbia University for a town hall discussion with Syrian 
doctors, relief workers, activists and international human rights 
advocates on the humanitarian situation in Aleppo. The discussion will 
focus on the escalating attacks on medical facilities and civilians in 
the city, and will shed light on how doctors, relief workers and 
civilians sustain life amidst these horrors.

Panel speakers:

Dr Abdulaziz, UOSSM - Relief Workers in Aleppo

Dr Hatem, Independent Doctors Association - Aleppo

Rami Jarrah, citizen journalist - Aleppo/Gaziantep

Lara Zakaria, Syrian-American Medical Society (SAMS)

Kathleen Fallon, Syria Campaign

Sarah Leah Whitson, MENA Director, Human Rights Watch

Malek Rasamny and Anna Reumert

The event is open to the public. Please arrive on time as we will begin 
7pm sharp with a video message from our panel speaker in Aleppo. Doors 
open at 6.30 PM.

The event is co-hosted by Students Organize for Syria (SOS) and is the 
first in a series of Syria Panel Talks at Columbia this fall.
