The briefing, Overcoming Health Care Challenges in Immigrant Communities, will discuss challenges to immigrant communities accessing health care and social services—including cultural, linguistic, coverage, and other barriers—and how this impacts broader population health and well-being. The format will be conversational, led by co-moderators with backgrounds in health and immigration policy, respectively. The discussion will cover real-world challenges and solutions alongside research and general trends.
The event will be webcast.
