Event description

Description

Dell Medical School’s Department of Population Health and the Office of Diversity Equity and Inclusion invite you to partipate in the first of a series of community conversations called “social Identity and Health in Central Texas- Immigration Today: The Impact on the Health of Our Community.”

More than 1.7 million of whom live in Texas. The goal of these conversations is to engage our community of health care providers in ongoing discussions to better understand the scope of this issue and its health ramifications, and to help create clarity in an area where policy decisions, legal battles and logistical difficulties can sow confusion and fear in ways that affect the entire community’s health. We also will discuss challenges and opportunities inherent in adapting health delivery for the region’s undocumented community.

The initial event will include a documentary screening sections of the HBO documentary “Clinica de Migrantes” and discussion by a panel of experts with lived experience and extensive backgrounds in immigration policy and history.

Agenda

-6PM-6:45PM –Screening of the HBO documentary “Clinica de Migrantes”
