Event description

Description

The Glasgow branch of Students for Global Health are hosting a lecture by the illustrious breast surgeon and MP, Dr Philippa Whitford.

In the early 1990s, Philippa spent 18 months volunteering as a consultant at a UN-sponsored hospital in Gaza, Palestine. Thereafter, she spent a short time in southern Lebanon doing project planning for the charity Medical Aid for Palestinians. Since then Philippa has continued to be a steadfast and passionate supporter of Palestinian rights. Philippa returned to Palestine in both 2016 and 2017 to support the development of improve breast cancer care services.

Through the course of the evening Philippa will share her experiences, new and old, of her time spent in Gaza and the consequential impacts that the occupation and the blockade has on healthcare, particularly breast cancer.

This event is free to attend; however, donations will be warmly received and all proceeds given to Medical Aid for Palestinians.
