Dr. Joanne Liu, international president of  Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), has been confirmed as the keynote speaker at CHEPA’s New Frontiers in Health Policy Research Conference, being held on Monday April 25 at McMaster’s CIBC Hall.

Liu, a Canadian pediatrician born in Quebec City and a graduate of McGill University School of Medicine, was appointed MSF’s international president in 2013.

The New Frontiers In Health Policy Conference is an annual multidisciplinary conference for graduate students, sponsored by CHEPA in conjunction with the Health Policy PhD Program.

In addition to prominent keynote and panel speakers, an exciting central part of the conference will be hearing an array of selected graduate students from area universities presenting their own innovative health policy research for discussion and critique in a supportive environment.
