West Coast LEAF is very pleased to announce this year’s speaker, Dr. Samantha Nutt. Nutt is a physician, professor, author, and activist. She is the Founder and Executive Director of War Child in North America, an organization that works to provide support and stability to children in areas of conflict by helping to rebuild war-affected communities. Dr. Nutt’s book, Damned Nations: Greed, Guns, Armies, and Aid, observes 15 years of her experiences caring for those in some of the most violent regions on the planet and building her non-profit, War Child North America. Her long list of accolades includes being named one of Canada’s 25 most influential figures by The Globe and Mail and receiving the Order of Canada in 2011.
