Immigration policy changes and their impact on health

A PSC Brown Bag Seminar

Paul J. Fleming

Monday, 1/28/2019, 12:00 pm to 1:25 pm.   ARCHIVED EVENT

Location: 1430 ISR - Thompson

Since the 2016 election, the climate for immigrants in this country has changed due to increasing anti-immigrant rhetoric and rapid changes in immigration enforcement policies. Dr. Fleming will present research conducted in collaboration with partners in Washtenaw County and Detroit to examine how recent immigration policy changes have affected health behaviors and health outcomes for Latino immigrant families. Additionally, he will present research that documents the impact that immigration policy enforcement can have on reproductive autonomy and fertility intentions.


Paul Fleming is an Assistant Professor in Health Behavior and Health Education at the University of Michigan School of Public Health. He received his Ph.D. in Health Behavior from the University of North Carolina where he was a trainee at the Carolina Population Center. Currently, his mixed-methods research focuses on the social determinants of health and health behaviors, with a particular focus on developing and evaluating interventions in poor and marginalized communities in Michigan and abroad.

PSC Brown Bag seminars highlight recent research in population studies and serve as a focal point for building our research community.
