Robert Lawrence, a founding member of Physicians for Human Rights, and the founder of the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future, will describe the journey behind his distinguished medical career as part of the 2003 Voyage and Discovery Lecture series at the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus. Lawrence will speak on Tuesday, March 18, 2003 at 7:30 p.m. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Over the past 30 years, Lawrence has worked at establishing quality health care in the South and he has helped to investigate abuses, torture and killings by oppressive regimes. He was one of six doctors who founded Physicians for Human Rights in 1986. That group, as one of the founding groups of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines, shared in the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize.
His Center for a Livable Future promotes policies aimed at protecting health and the global environment, with the aim of sustaining life on Earth for future generations.
The lecture will be in 210 Hodson Hall on the Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles Street. For information, visit: www.jhu.edu/~voyage/voyage.htm.
