Discussion about the Israeli colonial uses of medicine and the medical situation in the OPT
with Dr. Majed Nassar.
Dr. Majed Nassar will be joining us to discuss the medical situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territory-- the availability of treatment, access to healthcare and hospitals, medicine, etc. He will also be exploring the issue of the colonial uses of medicine and the ways in which Israel, in addition to denying services, uses seemingly good practices, like vaccinations, to maintain a basic health status quo that ultimately serves its own interests.
Dr. Majed Nassar is a cardiologist, author, and long time activist. He is also a board member of the Alternative Information Center.
