New restrictions on immigration and increased immigration enforcement under the Trump Administration are having a profound impact on our nation, reaching from the dinner table to the board room, from courtrooms to classrooms. Few groups are facing as many challenges as the immigrant family. Join us for a webinar featuring a new report from The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, Living in an Immigrant Family in America: How Fear and Toxic Stress Are Affecting Daily Life, Well-Being, and Health. The report is based on focus groups held in eight cities across four states with a total of 100 parents in immigrant families, who represented 15 countries of origin, as well as on telephone interviews with 13 pediatricians who serve immigrant communities.
