Welcome, and thank you for participating in the Immigrant Health SIG survey.

Recognizing that a large and rapidly growing segment of the child population in the United States are immigrants or children of immigrants, this SIG will bring together pediatricians interested in addressing the unique and complex needs of diverse immigrant children.

With your active participation and feedback we hope to support pediatricians and the Academy in immigrant child health care quality, policy, primary care, research, and advocacy. We thank you for your feedback and look forward to hearing from you.
