The Jefferson Center for Refugee Health, Jefferson Department of Emergency Medicine, and the Jefferson Medical College student group Refugee Health Partners are hosting the 2nd annual Global Health Conference- Communities at Work on May 5th!
We are excited to feature Lily Yeh as the keynote speaker.

The conference will also include a panel of refugees living in Philadelphia who will share their stories, as well as a panel of healthcare and social service providers for the refugee community. There will also be a PhotoVoice presentation that examines resettlement stressors of refugees in Philadelphia through their own photographs (http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/video?id=8550126&syndicate=syndicate§ion).
