Held at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, June 7-9, 2018
“The North American Refugee Health Conference is recognized as the preeminent conference destination for healthcare and resettlement professionals working with refugee populations. This three day conference focuses on issues that are relevant to the emerging field of refugee healthcare. Attendees have the opportunity to learn about best practices, increase their levels of cultural competency, connect with like-minded professionals, reflect on the challenges and successes of the work they do, and develop a network of colleagues who are making a difference in their communities. The conference takes place in June each year and alternates between the United States and Canada.”
RVO received good feedback and support from refugee health representatives from 25 states and 3 countries who are interested in potentially opening up a locally relevant RefVol site.
