Addressing the Social Service Needs of Latinx Immigrant Families
The May Brown Bag Research Talk will feature Dr. Christina Lovato from the School of Social Work. The presentation is called Addressing the Social Service Needs of Latinx Immigrant Families Impacted by Immigration Enforcement and COVID-19. This research presentation showcases the exacerbated fears among Latinx immigrant communities which have been further intensified by the COVID-19 pandemic and the shifts in U.S. immigration policies during the past two decades. This qualitative study examined: 1) the social service needs of Latinx immigrant families at risk of immigration enforcement and COVID-19; and 2) the experiences of social service agencies serving immigrant families during the pandemic. One CHES credit will be offered for participation in this event.
The talk will take place on Wednesday, May 26, 2021 from 12 pm – 1 pm on Zoom. Brown Bag Research Talks will be hosted monthly this semester by the Center and will feature the research of Latinx faculty and CSULB faculty conducting research on Latinx health and health disparities, as well as of other underserved communities. No RSVP is required for these events.
