The annual Summer Institute on Migration and Health is organized by the Health Initiative of the Americas of the University of California, and the School of Medicine of the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla. This year we will also combine this event with the IME's Formative Health Journey, organized by the Institute of Mexicans Abroad (IME), and the Ministries of Health and Foreing Affairs of Mexico.

This Institute is offered to profesionals and graduate students from the United States, Mexico, and Latin America interested in migration and its health implications.

 - Provide updated information on priority health issues among the migrant population
 - Share successful strategies to approach those health challenges and promote the exchange of expertise
 - Encourage high quality research and international, interdisciplinary collaboration on health and migration in Mexico, Latin America, and the United States
 - Provide leaders in public health with tools to develop programs in global health and migration.

The presentations and workshops are taught by well known professors from United States, Mexico, Latin-America and Europe. Simultaneous translation (English-Spanish) is provided during the entire course.
The Summer Institute also includes a one-day field trip to a rural community with a high level of emigration to the United States. There, the students have the opportunity to interact with the community, and directly observe the benefits and problems related to migration.



The event includes a poster session. If you are interested in presenting a poster during the IV Summer Institute on Migration and Health, please see the attached document
