Book Talk: The Health of Newcomers - Oct 12 6pm (Boston Public Library Central Branch)
09 Oct 2017
Health of Newcomers.jpg
Wendy E. Parmet and Patricia Illingworth, authors of The Health of Newcomers: Immigration, Health Policy, and the Case for Global Solidarity Thursday, October 12, 2017, 6 - 7:30 p.m.

Immigration and health care are hotly debated issues. Policies that relate to both issues--to the health of newcomers--often reflect misimpressions about immigrants and their impact on health care systems. In The Health of Newcomers, Wendy E. Parmet and Patricia Illingworth draw on rigorous legal and ethical arguments and empirical studies, as well as personal stories of immigrant struggles, to make the compelling case that global phenomena such as poverty, the medical brain drain, organ tourism, and climate change ought to inform the health policy we craft for newcomers and natives alike.

Parmet is George J. and Kathleen Waters Matthews Distinguished Professor of Law and professor of public policy and urban affairs at Northeastern University, where she directs the Center for Health Policy and Law. She is the author of Populations, Public Health, and the Law. Illingworth is professor in the Department of Philosophy and in the D'Amore-McKim School of Business at Northeastern University, where she is also lecturer in law. She is the author of AIDS and the Good Society; Trusting Medicine: The Moral Costs of Managed Care; and Us Before Me: Ethics and Social Capital for Global Well-Being.
