Health Care as a Human Right: The Global Crisis Affecting Women
Presented by Taraneh Shirazian ’99 MD’03, director, Division of Global Women’s Health, NYU Grossman School of Medicine, and founder Saving Mothers
Through the lens of Saving Mothers, a non-profit dedicated to reducing maternal mortality, we will discuss the health care disparities facing women globally and in our own backyards–maternal mortality, reproductive health access, and violations of basic human rights. Dr. Shirazian is an OBGYN with both global and local experience providing clinical care and designing programs to reduce maternal deaths and optimize health care for women.
