New Video Breaks Down the Potential Impacts of Sanctuary Policies on Immigrant and Refugee Families

As health care providers and pediatricians, many of us are concerned about the impacts of current events and shifting political climates on our immigrant and refugee communities.

In a new video, PolicyLab researcher Robin Ortiz discusses recent research that explores the potential impacts of sanctuary immigration policies on immigrant and refugee child and family health outcomes. 

Supported by a PolicyLab pilot grant, this project sets the stage for future research and can help to equip lawmakers with language that can help support positive health outcomes for immigrant families. 

Hear more from Dr. Ortiz about her team’s findings in this new video!
