Child Health and Immigration Conference
The current spate of discussions surrounding immigration in the United States rarely address how the issue affects children’s health. But new policies being considered in Washington could damage the well-being of children with immigrant parents, according to a pediatric health expert at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Many immigrant families are feeling stress and concern in the current political climate, regardless of whether they have family members who are undocumented. According to a study at the Pew Research Center, one of every eight children in California has an undocumented parent.
Registration is available online. The conference is free, but RSVPs must be received by 5 p.m. May 17th.
