Human Rights Day: Freed Iranian Doctors

This month the Beyond Borders LLC went to an event that was hosted by Center for International Education.  We were able to sit down and hear the amazing experiences that Doctors Kamiar and Arash Alaei shared with the audience.  We were able to learn about their efforts in Iran to help with AIDS and HIV that eventually lead them into prison as political prisoners in the most notorious Iranian prison, Evin.  We also learned about their efforts while in prison to help the other prisoners and some of their own personal battles.  We were all amazed by their strength and perseverance that they had through everything from doing the clinics fighting AIDS/HIV, to imprisonment, to deportation from their home land.  The Beyond Borders LLC is revving up for next semester with all new ideas, competitions, opportunities and fun things to do.  See you all next semester.
