Dr. Abuelaish poses with students, International Institute Vice Provost Cindy Fan, and Center Board members Younes and Soraya Nazarian and Robin Carnesale.
On April 18, 2013, the Y&S Nazarian Center for Israel Studies hosted Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish, acclaimed physician, author and humanitarian, in a public talk entitled “Perspectives on Peace, Health & Hope: A Gaza Doctor's Journey from Personal Tragedy to a Search for Peace and Human Dignity”.
“I lost my daughters, but I will never lose hope. As a doctor, I will never lose hope until the patient dies […] As long as there is one life, there is hope.”
Dr. Abuelaish has devoted his life to peace and reconciliation, especially promoting health and education as strategies for resolving violent conflicts, and is the author of I Shall Not Hate. UCLA Chancellor Gene Block, International Institute Vice-Provost Cindy Fan, Nazarian Center Director Arieh Saposnik, and UCLA Fielding School of Public Health Dean Jody Heymann participated in the event, attended by more than 150 students, faculty and community members.
