The speakers' presentations are available to AHCJ members.
Experts and journalists have gathered to understand and better report stories on the health status of – and health care provided to – U.S. immigrants, both legal and undocumented.
Sessions will include finding the stories you can pursue on the immigrant health paradox, how the health reform battle has impacted immigrants, workplace health and safety, the mental health needs of immigrants, special challenges in covering immigrant communities and more.
Optional hands-on sessions on Thursday will bring to life the connections of data covering immigrants and health via online and desktop data tools.
