Tarzikhan2.27.18 —  Alexandra Tarzikhan JD/MPH ’19, will deliver a TEDxTufts talk on Sunday, March 11, at noon at Tufts University's Cohen Auditorium. Alexandra, who is from Aleppo, Syria, is currently pursuing a dual degree in law at Northeastern University School of Law and a master's in public health at Tufts University School of Medicine. She will use her talk to raise awareness about the refugee crisis with a view to humanizing the issue rather than discussing it from a political or legal perspective. 

“I am really excited to be speaking at TEDxTufts this year and to have some close friends from all over the world be present for it,” said Tarzikhan. 

Tickets for this event are now on sale at tedxtufts.com.
