About this Event

Join us for a forum on the role of UCSF as an academic medical center in addressing ongoing challenges to immigrant health and the current political landscape for immigrants and refugees entering the US.

Note on Photography: There will be photographs taken at the symposium. Please let us know if you are NOT okay with being photographed.

Overflow Room: We will have an overflow room in Mission Hall Room 1407, where people on the waitlist or not registered will be able to watch the livestream.
