Hosted by the Eck Institute for Global Health and in partnership with the President’s Office and ND Forum, Professor Fran Quigley of Indiana University McKinney School of Law will present “Access to Medicines as a Moral Imperative and Human Right.” His talk will focus on the challenge of ensuring both robust development of new medicines and access to medicines for those in need–a challenge that is present in our own U.S. communities and in communities across the world.

Prof. Quigley is the director of the Health and Human Rights Clinic at IU McKinney, has written on this issue for multiple international and national publications, including Foreign Affairs
