Learn More About Our Committees

Society members are eligible to apply for terms on our committees – which are special interest groups dedicated to a subfield within refugee and immigrant health. These committees require substantial commitment on the part of their members and produce guidance, publications and more.

Our Committees


Following a very successful session at the 2020 NARHC we’re incubating an advocacy committee. Check back soon for more updates!

Mental Health

We are currently incubating the concept of a “Mental Health” or “Behavioral Health” committee. Check back soon for more updates!


Pulling off the North American Refugee Health Conference (NARHC), which is usually hosted over 3 days for ~700 attendees, is a huge undertaking. Our planning committee members are a big help as we create the agenda, select speakers, and determine conference logistics.

Research, Evaluation, & Ethics

Society members launched their first committee – with a mission of fostering refugee health research among Society members and acting as a source of research expertise and support for the broader refugee health community. Selected committee members include over 20 professionals representing an array of specialties, including a cohort of refugee health experts who also identify as previously resettled refugees. Learn more about the committee here.
