Beginning Wednesday, April 11, an educational exhibition presented by Doctors Without Borders will open on the uptown campus of Tulane University to raise public awareness about the experience of the world’s more than 65 million refugees and internally displaced people.

“Forced From Home” is a free, interactive, outdoor exhibit that explores the challenges faced by participants of Doctors Without Borders in addressing basic medical needs in a host of settings.

“Visitors are taken behind the headlines about the global refugee crisis to see what we see,” promises the exhibit.
