On our next special episode of Amplify Nursing we talk to Dr. Laura Vargas and Dr. Adriana Perez , two scholars whose research focuses on Latinx immigrant populations in the US.

Dr. Vargas is a Vice-Provost post-doctoral fellow at the Penn Injury Science Center at the School of Nursing and Dr. Perez is a nurse practitioner and an assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing.

They discuss the challenges our immigrant communities face during this pandemic, how health and healthcare disparities in the Latinx immigrant communities are being magnified, and what needs to happen moving forward to start to solve the complex issues both during and after the pandemic.

For this episode, we are coordinating coverage with At The Core of Care podcast from the PA Action Coalition . Check out their Refugee Health Up Close episode to learn more about immigrant and refugee health.
