As the Syrian conflict continues into its seventh year, questions on the future of Syria’s education, research and medical system are incredibly pressing. On October 6-8, 2017, SAMS hosted its 4th National Symposium at the Andaz Hotel in New York City. The symposium will focus on the theme of A Call to Action for Future Syria: A Coalition on Education and Research.
