Elective Rotation: Refugee Health Care and Nutrition
Contact: Tahereh K. Naderi
Location: Buffalo, NY
I spent time at an FQHC in Buffalo, NY, that focuses on refugee health care. I worked with several providers and saw a breadth of patients in clinic. I spent some time with community health workers, who are trained as doulas and have started an organization that accompanies refugee women throughout their pregnancy and helps them nagivate the healthcare system. I also spent some time reading and researching about food systems and food justice, as well as healthy nutrition on a budget.
