Diana Montoya-Williams (PSC Research Associate) wrote an Op-ed in The Philadelphia Inquirer about the health insurance needs of mixed-status immigrant families and solutions to meet them. Montoya-Williams calls for better outreach strategies to educate residents that the act of seeking out health insurance for a child will not negatively affect the immigration status of anyone in that child's family. Montoya-Williams urges state and local governments to incentivize targeted, preemptive public health messaging around this issue.
New study conducted by Diana Montoya-Williams (PSC Research Associate) titled "Racial/ethnic differences in maternal resilience and associations with low birthweight", published in Journal of Perinatology Society was cited in a recent blog on the Penn LDI website.
