What We Do

Research Agenda

We conduct rigorous, mixed methods research to:

  • Improve access to care and health outcomes for immigrants;
  • Examine the impact of policies and narratives on the health and wellbeing of new Americans and all Americans;
  • Evaluate innovative policies and practices that enhance integration and wellbeing for refugees and immigrants; and
  • Understand and illuminate the contributions of immigrants to health care, labor markets, and other systems in the US.

The Leah Zallman Center builds on the Institute for Community Health’s participatory methodology and immigrant health research portfolio, to ensure that community voices in research are amplified to the state and national level as part of evidence-based policy making.
