Medical Repatriation and Other Migrant Health Issues

Host: Mark Nolan Hill, MD

Guest: Steven Larson, MD

Lost in the ever-evolving diversity of the American populace, is what happens when one of our newest, or in some cases, undocumented immigrants, becomes extraordinarily ill. Under our current system, hospitals are often left to shoulder the logistical and financial burden of care. How are our hospitals coping with this responsibility, and how does this impact the care we can provide to these patients and more broadly, to all of our patients? Dr. Steven Larson, assistant dean of global health at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, and an expert on migrant health, helps us sort through some of the key issues related to this far-reaching topic. Dr. Mark Nolan Hill hosts.
