Conflict and Climate Change
Sunday, April 27th
5:30 - 8:30 pm
Eastside Recycling Center
2401 Scott Blvd. SE, Iowa City
Sponsored by Earth Care Working Group
( IC and West Branch Friends )

We'll begin our evening at 5:30 with a short film: "Conflict and Climate Change." After the film we'll share a simple supper and discussion. And then we'll listen to Dr. McCue share her insights and experience on the above topic. It should be an inspiring and motivating evening, and we hope you'll join us. We'll provide a simple supper of soup and bread, but welcome potluck contributions. Feel free to bring interested friends.

Our special guest will be Dr. Maureen McCue. The title of her talk is: Considering Health, Climate, Conflict Connections: Moving From a Death Spiral to a Life Sustaining World. She is a founding member, faculty, and former director of the University of Iowa Global Health Studies Program as well as a founding board member for the UI Center for Human Rights. As Adjunct Clinical Professor in the Colleges of Public Health and of Liberal Arts & Sciences, Dr. McCue has been teaching Health and Human Rights courses since 1997. Before coming to Iowa, she worked as a primary care provider with marginalized communities and has worked for a local women’s clinic for the last 16 years. She has coordinated the Iowa Chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility for the last 10 years. Endeavors in each arena have focused broadly on the human right to health within a life supporting sustainable planet. Specific interests have focused on health impacts of militarism, energy/climate change, food policy, women’s and disability rights. Dr. McCue has traveled, consulted, and worked extensively as a peace maker, researcher, and physician.
