International migration is a phenomenon that involves 244 million people worldwide, most of whom move in search of work and wellbeing. Migration is projected to increase in the future, related to geographic and economic disparities, climate change and political events, such that all nations must contend with the societal shifts that are brought about by human movement. Solutions to the challenge of migration must be multi-sector and coordinated.

The Conference serves as a platform to explore the multidisciplinary aspects of migration and their impact on health. Conference highlights include plenary and keynote sessions, panel discussions, student poster sessions and a conference reception at a location on the UC Davis campus.



Organized by the Migration and Health Research Center and the Migration Research Cluster.

Sponsored by the Blum Center for Developing Economies, the Center for Occupational and Environmental Health, the Center for Poverty Research, the Center for Regional Change, Health Initiatives of the Americas, the Division of Social Sciences, the Institute for Social Sciences, Global Affairs, UC Global Health Institute and the Western Center for Agricultural Health and Safety.
