Register here to join our In Conversation Live with Baroness Julia Neuberger DBE

Rabbi Baroness Julia Neuberger DBE, Chair of University College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Chair of The Whittington Hospital NHS Trust since 1 April 2020, will be joining Professor Henrietta Bowden-Jones OBE (President of the RSM Psychiatry Section) for an insightful discussion on her career, the charitable work she does with refugees and asylum seekers, and her book; Antisemitism: What It Is. What It Isn't. Why It Matters, which uses contemporary examples and historical context to unpack what constitutes antisemitism, building a powerful argument for why it is crucial to come to a shared understanding and exploring ways of dealing with it.

Instead of charging for this webinar we are asking people to support the Royal Society of Medicine in these unprecedented times. Now more than ever, we need your help to continue our work. Please consider making a donation for watching this webinar. Thank you for your generosity.
