Webinar: Healthy Communities - Improving Immigrant Access to Health Care
Staying healthy means knowing when and where to go for medical help and having access to experts who can speak your language, culturally and linguistically. On February 23, 2011, join Cities of Migration for a webinar to learn about successful initiatives that can improve immigrant access to the health care system, whether as patients or as internationally-trained health professionals.
Participants will hear from “The Welcome Back Initiative” (San Francisco, USA) and the “MiMi- With Migrants for Migrants” program (Hannover, Germany) which are actively connecting internationally-trained health care professionals to employment and training diverse cultural mediators to improve health literacy within immigrant communities. Presenters: Ramazan Salman, Ethno-Medizinisches Zentrum (Hannover), and José Ramón Fernández-Peña, The Welcome Back Initiative (San Francisco)
