Our City of Nations – Inaugural Conference refugee and recent immigrant health and wellness

This October marks the 50th anniversary of the 1965 Immigration and Naturalization Act.

  • Ms. Barbara Day, Domestic Resettlement Section Chief, Program on Refugee Management, US State Department
  • Dr. Edward Ehlinger, Commissioner, Minnesota Department of Health
