The online home of Physicians for Human Rights’ National Student Program was built on a WordPress platform, but is much more than a blog.

Dedication, Persistance, and Teamwork

Jared is highly creative and collegial, and demonstrates dedication, persistence, and teamwork combined with a keen sense of humor.

Jared is an incredibly creative and thoughtful video producer. He has made some beautiful clips since coming to PHR that innovatively depict the issues of importance to the organization.
