The Leah Zallman Center for Immigrant Health Research is a research center at the Institute for Community Health (ICH). We are a team of interdisciplinary social science researchers with expertise at the intersection of immigrant, economic, and health justice.
We advance immigrant health through:
- Research – rigorous, actionable inquiry to advance immigrant health and well-being.
- Networks – engagement with immigrant communities, advocates, policymakers, funders, and social and health systems.
- Capacity and Learning – space to experiment with anti-racist, anti-assimilationist methods and grow future leaders.
- Impact – community and public engagement to share knowledge, inform policy, and advance social change.
We are proud to build on ICH’s history of using participatory methods to ensure that community voices in research are amplified to the state and national level as part of evidence-based policymaking, drawing on our core values pictured below.
