Tosteson Medical Education Center, 260 Longwood Ave, Boston, MA 02115
The Harvard Student Human Rights Collaborative (HSHRC) invites you to join the Boston Asylum Network Training on September 8th, 2019 from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm! This event is generously co-sponsored by MGH Asylum Clinic, Physicians for Human Rights (PHR), and the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative (HHI)! 

The Asylum Network Training is open to all members of the public. Medical students, including first year students, are welcome at any stage of their training and will always conduct evaluations with trained faculty members.

PHR's Asylum Network consists of over 500 health professionals throughout the US who offer pro bono psychological and physical evaluations to document evidence of torture and other human rights abuses for men, women, and children fleeing persecution in their home countries. Trained medical students assist in both the medical evaluation and preparation of an affidavit that helps to support each client's legal case for asylum. 

Any training fee has been graciously subsidized by internal funding sources. We aim to make this event as accessible as possible to the public, and we welcome any donations at
