Immigrant health was briefly mentioned during the opening session of the NAHN Conference, and along with nurses, librarians are a group concerned with how to best support this population.  For those interested in how libraries can help support this population, here are a few resources to share: 

REFORMA Children in Crisis Project – https://www.facebook.com/REFORMAChildreninCrisis/ 

CDC Immigrant and Refugee Health – https://www.cdc.gov/immigrantrefugeehealth/index.html 

Office of Refugee Resettlement – https://www.acf.hhs.gov/orr/programs/refugee-health
