Theme: The Face of the Person Who is Hungry

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.

This call for proposals invites papers and posters that:

  • Explore the social justice tradition and its application to the health and well-being of the person who is hungry
  • Present research data that discuss the current state of knowledge regarding the causes and effects of hunger: its prevention, identification, and short and long-term remedies.
  • Discuss philosophical and/or theoretical issues related to the health and human consequences of hunger.
  • Discuss clinical and/or programmatic initiatives to foster health care equity for the person who is hungry.
  • Discuss governmental and private programs to address hunger.
