COEH Davis’ Migrant Labor & Global Health Conference


March 1-3, 2017 at the Conference Center in UC Davis

Migration is a phenomenon that involves 244 million people worldwide (nearly one
billion if internal migrants are included), most of whom move in search of work and
well being. Globally, immigrants face a range of health disparities and barriers to social and economic integration, and efforts to seek solutions to these problems must be coordinated and multidisciplinary.

This 2-day conference brings together a renowned group of international experts in plenary, keynote and panel sessions on the demographic, occupational, economic and policy aspects of migration.

The MLGH Conference is organized by the Migration and Health Research Center and the Migration Research Cluster at the University of California, Davis.
