Programs & Services
We lead advocacy, education and networking opportunities within refugee and asylee health for members and the public. This includes our North American Refugee Health Conference, special interest committees, mentorship, research and more.

Members can connect with other members as mentors or mentees. Mentorships can last as long or short as members need.
North American Refugee Health Conference (NARHC)
We offer scholarships for previously resettled refugees to attend our conference, the North American Refugee Health Conference (US). The applicant must be a previously resettled refugee that is currently working in the medical field (in any capacity) or a refugee student studying or training in the medical field (in any capacity).
The scholarship is for the registration fee only. Travel, lodging, and food are not covered. It is not a cash award. If awarded, the Society will register the awardee for the conference and waive the fee.
The funds for the scholarships are obtained by interested individuals making a tax deductible donations to our scholarship fund. How many scholarships are awarded is entirely dependent upon how much money is donated. Scholarships are awarded on a first come/first served basis. They are awarded in the order of those that apply. The Society does not wait to make the award. Once the appropriate amount for a scholarship is collected the next applicant is notified of the award. Since many conference attendees don’t register until a short time before the conference, awards could potentially be given right up until the start of the conference. If an applicant’s plans has changed and they can’t attend, then the award will be given to the next applicant on the list.
Webinars & Trainings
Approximately once a quarter the Society offers webinars with refugee and immigrant health experts. This includes an in-depth training on specific topics such as Asylum Evaluations. Join the Society to receive updates about upcoming webinars and educational opportunities.
