The Health of Immigrant Populations: Coverage, Access, & Outcomes

Thursday, June 13, 2002, 2:00-3:00 p.m. ET

Overview | Presenter Information | Agenda | Resources | Archive


The immigrant population, which in 2000 included 11 percent of people in the U.S., are disproportionately more likely than native-born citizens to lack health care coverage and to receive fewer health care services. One in five U.S. children reside in the house of a foreign-born householder.

During this program, Dr. Julie Hudman of the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured provides an overview of immigrants' health care coverage and access. In addition, Dr. Stella Yu of the Maternal and Child Health Bureau discusses MCHB studies on the health and well being of immigrant children.
