Elective Rotation: Refugee Health Program
Location: Sacramento, CA
I spent two days shadowing Dr. Mishra at the Refugee Health Program in hopes of learning more about refugee health. I found that this clinic is not a continuity clinic site, but a site where an initial visit is done for whole refugee families soon after they arrive into the country. It was interesting to learn about the medical examinations that families have to endure before they are allowed to go to the community health centers.
