We are pleased to invite you to the final seminar in our series on Friday 29th April where we will conclude our discussion on the theme of “Ireland in Crisis” by examining Health on this occasion. A selection of speakers will discuss various aspects of this topic: from power within the medical profession; to barriers posed by social class in managing illness; to how chronic illness shapes self-identity. We are delighted to be joined by Dr Jo Murphy-Lawless (TCD) as a guest speaker who will look at the denial of health as a core human need.
