Metro Refugee Health Task Force
Since the early 1980s, the Metro Refugee Health Task Force has brought together Twin Cities metropolitan area health professionals, social service workers, students, community members and others interested in refugee health issues. At monthly meetings, presentations by various individuals working in the field of refugee and immigrant health serve as a catalyst for group dialogue and networking. Meetings are scheduled for the first Tuesday of the month, September through June.
The Task Force is currently coordinated by Sara Chute from MDH (Refugee Health Program), Danushka Wandurangala from MDH (Refugee Health Program), and Andrea Everson from Wellshare International. For more information on the Task Force or to receive notice of upcoming meetings, contact Sara Chute at 651-201-5543.
