International Programs welcomes acclaimed physician and pain and palliative care specialist Dr. M.R. Rajagopal to Iowa City for a series of talks during September 16-18.
Dr. M. R. Rajagopal is the founder-chairman of Pallium India, a palliative care non-governmental organization based out of Kerala, India. A 2018 nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize, he has been referred to as the ‘father of palliative care in India’ (first by the New York Times) in honor of his significant contribution to the Indian palliative care scene. Dr. Rajagopal was awarded the ‘Padma Shri,’ one of the highest civilian honors, by the government of India in 2018 and ‘Alison Des Forges Award for Extraordinary Activism’ by Human Rights Watch in 2014.
This event is co-sponsored by the College of Nursing, College of Pharmacy, and University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics Supportive and Palliative Care Program.
