Dr. Sarah Kimball, a member of the Leah Zallman Center Advisory Council, recently co-authored an editorial in Addiction entitled  “Immigration status matters: the intersectional risk of immigration vulnerability and substance use disorder.” The editorial highlights how immigration status acts as a barrier to people with substance use disorders (SUDs) seeking and receiving medical care and emphasizes the need for a greater focus on immigrants living at this intersection.
