Healthcare for Undocumented Immigrants

The esteemed bioethics think tank, the Hastings Center, recently identified “eight news stories to watch in 2015.”  These are topics that the staff determined are developing and therefore “certain or likely to have impact in the year ahead.”

Right near the top of the list, the Hastings Center encourages its readers to “look for increased attention to solutions to closing gaps in access to health care for undocumented immigrants on grounds of fairness and cost-effectiveness.”

This is precisely the topic of the next CLE at the Hamline University Health Law Institute.  At 6:00 on Wednesday, March 25, Wendy Parmet will present “Left Out: Undocumented Immigrants and the American Health Care System.”
