For the third year in a row intercalating medical students at HCRI (BSc and MA) have attended the annual Health in Humanitarian Settings Research Symposium at Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.


The event this year took place on Tuesday 25th November 2014 and we were delighted by the HCRI representation:


  • Liverpool3Vikki Holmes (Alumnus, Intercalated BSc in Global Health) received a commendation prize for her presentation on Rape as a Weapon of War, in which she reflected on what lessons, if any, had been learned since Bosnia
  • Iain Murphy (Alumnus, Intercalated BSc in Global Health) closed the event with a presentation on whether or not celebrity humanitarianism does more harm than good
  • HCRI lecturers Maura Duffy and Jessica Hawkins also chaired two panels at the event

In 2013 HCRI alumni from the BSc in Global Health presented at the event:


  • Samihah Moazam presented a poster on approaches to measles eradication
  • Sally Rhead took part in a panel presentation, speaking on civil-military cooperation in disasters with a focus on the China earthquake

We look forward to attending again next year!


Thanks to the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine for hosting yet another extremely well organised and highly informative event and for giving HCRI staff and students the chance to participate in the Symposium.
