Monday, April 29 12:00 noon - 01:30 pm

Social Science Symposium Series: Dr. Joan E. Paluzzi "Tuberculosis on ICE: Intersections between health and immigration policy" For many immigrants, ICE policy (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) and the actions of its agents may play a more pivotal role than that of Public Health professionals in determining the ability of an individual to survive a diagnosis of tuberculosis. Access to the diagnostic services and the therapies necessary to cure diseases like TB are regulated by claims to citizenship or the perceived legitimacy of one?s presence on one side of a border or the other. This privileges determinations of legality or illegality and the enforcement of immigration policies and laws over curative interventions and life-saving interventions. It also fails to take advantage of a critical opportunity to move the discussion of health as a fundamental human right onto center stage in the current health reform debate.

Speaker: Seng Kok Ung Note: There will be two speaking events, one at noon and one at 4 p.m. Seng Kok Ung (aka Sam Ung), author of the book, I Survived the Killing Fields, grew up in Cambodia in the city of Battambang, which is in the northwest part of the country. His mother and father owned a small restaurant that supported the family until the fateful day in which the Khmer Rouge took power and emptied all of the cities of people. Overnight they lost everything they had and were thrown into a strange world where Pol Pot wanted to create a true agrarian society, taking Cambodia to what he termed was "Year One." By the end of the Khmer Rouge dictatorship and Pol Pot, 3 million people had simply disappeared. This is where Sam's story starts. He was somehow able to survive and bring many of his family members out of a collapsed nation that was still at war with itself. It is a story of courage and faith and love that sets itself apart. Sam is a riveting speaker who digs deep into his spirit to bring the honest emotions of a man who had to unimaginable things to stay alive in order to help his family in any way he could. Since Sam has seen so much war in his life he speaks about peace and love for your fellow man and has a great desire to do what he can to help bring about healing in the Seattle Cambodian community Please join us as we hear Sam's story.
