Topics for these policy seminars have included environmental and natural resources policy, health-service delivery policy, social welfare policy, transportation policy, science and technology policy, international affairs, national security, urban and regional growth policy, and political campaigns.
This course will examine health services that are provided to immigrants to the US with a particular emphasis on the role that Community Health Clinics, volunteer and charity clinics, public hospitals and Medicaid and Medicare play. It will also look at services in sending countries, particularly Mexico, as well as how such services and entitlements work in Europe and elsewhere. Other issues which will be included are worker’s Compensation and “medical” deportations as well as arrangements that have been developed to provide continuity of care when an immigrant has returned to their native country. Issues relating to care for those left behind will also be discussed.
