Immigration has recently been at the forefront of a complex national debate. What are the public health implications of current immigration policies? How does immigration affect the health of different groups living near the border region? In this last Paul Torrens Health Forum of the academic year, we’ll explore how immigration impacts public health with experts from policy, clinical practice, and advocacy. This session is co-presented by the Promise Institute for Human Rights at the UCLA School of Law.
