She will give a pitch entitled 'Health inequalities: a matter of social justice' in which she will talk about health inequalities. Health inequalities are widespread in Europe and also in the Groningen region and may form the greatest public health threat. Toebes will talk about the role of law and human rights law in particular to address these challenges.

The School offers a multidisciplinary platform for collaboration between scholars from RUG and UMCG. Some collaborations have already started, for example in a recent Call for papers in the journal BMC International Health and Human Rights.
