What is it?
Immigrants in the U.S. are facing new challenges as a result of a recent wave of federal, state, and local policies around immigration reform and policing. Health care providers can play important roles in helping immigrants access relevant resources to protect themselves and their families.
This Bay Area symposium will be open to health care providers – including physicians, nurses, social workers, and behavioral health providers – and to other community members. The program will fill provider knowledge gaps at the intersection of immigration, law, and health, with a special emphasis on resources available for immigrant families.
The multi-disciplinary planning group bridges multiple public health and health care organizations, including Kaiser Oakland, UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland, UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco, Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, Contra Costa Regional Medical Center, and the Alameda County Public Health Department
Who should come?
Anyone working in healthcare who wants to learn how we can better support the health of immigrant families; this forum is also open to community members who are interested in learning more about these topics.
