 Immigrant Child Health Toolkit

The Immigrant Child Health Toolkit was created by the members of the Immigrant Child Health Committee of the DC Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics. It is intended for use by medical providers caring for recently arrived immigrant children in their practice. We hope that this toolkit will be a valuable resource both during and around a patient’s medical visit.
