Every year, 1,500 to 2,000 refugees and asylum-seekers come to
Buffalo, one of the top refugee resettlement areas in the United
States, driven by social and political upheaval, war, economic and
agricultural distress, and poverty. To explore these challenges and
develop models for exemplary refugee health care systems, the
University at Buffalo will sponsor Buffalo’s first
collaborative Refugee Health Summit 2014 on April 24.
