Friday, September 22, 2017, 7pm-9pm. VIU Board Room, Building 305, Room 507.


A presentation by Dr. Stephanie Falz, an Emergency Physician currently working at the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. Dr. Falz was born in Germany and immigrated to Canada with her parents while she was in high school. She obtained her medical degree from the University of Alberta in 2002 and worked for several years in rural and remote places, including stints on Baffin Island. In 2015 she spent six months working for Doctors without Borders in a camp for internally displaced persons in South Sudan. Dr. Falz is interested in global justice and working with underprivileged populations.

ROAR is partnering with Positive Space Alliance, WUSC (World University Service of Canada), and the VIU Faculty Association, to bring attention to the refugee situation in the world. Dr. Falz's presentation will be followed by an update on the situation of LGBT refugees worldwide.
