Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I have been the process study director as well as the Portland site lead for the HOST demonstration for the last 2 years. In addition, I have presented specifically on immigrant mental health issues before at APHA, specifically the challenges that detained undocumented immigrants face and the responses that communities put in place. I also serve as the PI for the Department of Education funded Promise Neighborhood needs assessment for an immigrant community in Maryland.
