This session will address both clinical and policy issues involved in caring for immigrant, refugee, and migrant patients in health centers. Learn from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) experts about how primary care clinicians in the U.S. can access overseas vaccination records for their refugee patients and about CDC resources aimed at improving the health of refugees and preventing disease. An attorney with the National Immigration Law Center will highlight important policy developments that health center providers and their patients should be aware of. There will be ample time for discussion.
