Map and Directions

This seminar will describe the demographics and causes of global migration, and the relationship of migration to work. The lack of immigrant health visibility and research will be addressed. Additionally, we will focus on the causes and evidence for disparities in occupational health outcomes for immigrant workers, including increased workplace injury and illness compared to native workers. Most examples will be drawn from Latino immigration to the U.S. Cultural and personal impacts of these disparities will be described, as well as suggestions on how and why to reduce the disparities in occupational health outcomes.
