14th Annual McGinley-Rice Symposium: The Face of the Person Who is Incarcerated

The McGinley-Rice Symposium on Justice for Vulnerable Populations is a unique scholarly forum for nurses and other health care professionals to address issues of social justice in health care. Organized annually by the holder of the Jacques Laval Endowed Chair in Justice for Vulnerable Populations at the Duquesne University School of Nursing, the McGinley-Rice Symposium is an expression of the mission of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit, the Catholic missionary order that founded Duquesne and assists needy and marginalized persons throughout the world. Each year, the Symposium looks into the face of a specific vulnerable population and views the world through their eyes. In 2023, we will explore this through the eyes of the incarcerated.

Dates and Location:

October 26-27, 2023, at Duquesne University's Power Center in Pittsburgh, PA
