Online Community

The National Student Program Online Community is where you can connect with other students and health professionals who are dedicated to protecting human rights.

Every year, the National Student Program presents a series of Regional Advocacy Institutes and a National Conference.


PHR uses the skills of health professionals (forensics, physical exams, epidemiology) to establish evidence of human rights violations. Based on this evidence, PHR provides concrete policy recommendations.  Advocacy is essential to ensuring that policies are changed to promote and protect human rights.

As the next generation of health professionals, students across the country advocate for action based on PHR’s research. Student advocacy includes:

  • Responding to PHR Action Alerts
  • Participating in PHR National Actions
  • Organizing local, direct actions on issues they choose
  • Raising awareness of health and human rights issues on campuses, in local communities, and in the media
  • Organizing educational events
  • Urging elected officials to take action
