Rachel Yoskowitz, MPH, "Refugees and Resettlement in Michigan and around the World"

Join JHSM and Rachel Yoskowitz, MPH as we explore the subject of modern-day refugees, gleaning wisdom from previous refugee resettlement efforts, considering the community's responsibility to receive and resettle individuals admitted to the United States, and understanding how Metro Detroit plays a part in this larger process.

In this position, Yoskowitz helped resettle Russian and Kosovar refugees. Additionally, she served as the founding director of Project Chessed and advisor to the Chaldean American Association of Health Professionals (CAAHP), assisting refugees in both capacities.
