Project Report | Oct 4, 2019
Join us in Los Angeles from October 11-13th!

By Merith Basey | Executive Director

Our Keynote Speaker: Dolores Huerta
Our Keynote Speaker: Dolores Huerta

On behalf of UAEM North America we are excited to gather next weekend for our annual North American conference, this year to be hosted at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) the hub of our Xtandi campaign in the fight to make a prostate cancer medicine accessible and afforable. Our theme this year is aptly named “LOCAL ACTION, GLOBAL IMPACT: THE FIGHT FOR HEALTH EQUITY AND JUSTICE”.

We are expecting UAEM chapters and members from all across the region as well as colleagues from Brazil and Colombia and even as far as South Korea. Our teams will be coming together to discuss some of the most critical issues in access to medicines and health equity in North America and develop or strengthen organizing skills to help urge universities to licence their health innovations in a socially responsible way - better protecting access to these life-saving, publicly funded products for the public who funded them via their taxes in the first place. 

We are also excited to welcome an all time heroine of ours, the inspirational Dolores Huerta, one of the most important activists in the last century and who in 2012, President Obama betowed with The Presidential Media of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the US. 

If you're in LA or near by and interested in learning more you can join UAEM NA Board Members, staff, students and guests at our fundraising happy hour on Friday evening. More details here

Thanks to your support the UAEM NA conference remains a FREE event for our students and for whom we are able to provide limited travel support in order to ensure equal access. If you'd like to learn more about the conference and the speaker line up you can do so here: https://uaem.org/get-involved/uaem-na-2019-annual-conference/ 

Thanks for your continued support of student activism in the fight for greater health equity and access to medicines.
