We invite you to submit an abstract to the 14th annual McGinley-Rice Symposium on Justice for Vulnerable Populations, which will take place October 26-27, 2023 at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA. 

The McGinley-Rice Symposium on Social 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. 

Incarceration, the theme of McGinley-Rice 14, changes the life of the person who is imprisoned, his/her family, and the community. For many, incarceration does not emancipate or rehabilitate, but rather punishes and robs the person of human dignity and self-worth. 

To submit an abstract and be a part of this important discussion, visit duq.edu/McGinley-Abstract by noon, Thursday, April 13, 2023.

For questions, assistance and further information, contact Sr. Rosemary Donley (donleyrFREEDUQUESNE) or Rachel Means (meansrFREEDUQUESNE). To learn more about this year's symposium, visit duq.edu/social-justice.

Duquesne University School of Nursing is accredited as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation
