World Hazards for Children: War and Civil Unrest

In addition to her position in the Medical Faculty at Tufts, Dr. Schaller was also Adjunct Professor of Diplomacy in Tufts' Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy. She helped to found Physicians for Human Rights, an organization that has been instrumental in documenting human rights abuses throughout the world. Dr. Schaller's most far-reaching impact has been in bringing the attention of medical professionals and the world to the effects of war on children and youth. She has made an extremely important contribution to the work of UNICEF, WHO and the UN and made a special trip to Sarajevo to help the children of that war-ravaged city.
