Colloquium: “Keeping Patients with Immigration Concerns in HIV Care and Services”

October 12, 2017 – CHIPTS October installment of the Colloquia series focused on patients with immigration concerns (specifically the Latino community) who are living with HIV/AIDS and are at risk of falling out of care.

Tom Donohoe, MBA, presented on the relevancy of immigration concerns for patients living with HIV/AIDS while Alonso Bautista, MA, MFTI, examined the psychosocial stressors of being (or having loved ones who are) undocumented as well as especially those living with HIV in the current social climate. Ayako Miyashita, JD, closed the presentation by discussing the legalities associated with serving those with immigration concerns and the policies in place.
