GW Professor Participating in Science Café 360 Event on Psychological Impact of Immigration Actions

Dr. Kathleen Roche, MSW, PhD, an Associate Professor of Prevention and Community Health at the George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health (GW Milken Institute SPH), will participate in Science Café 360 on Wednesday, Oct. 17, to discuss the psychological impact of recent immigration actions on Latino families.

Science Café 360 is a casual space for open dialogue between community members, medical researchers, and social scientists. Researchers demystify what they do, how they do it, and why they think it will help local residents. Community members, including activists and parents, probe, debate, and share ideas that come from living the experience.

Dr. Roche and colleagues will discuss the latest research on how immigration news and actions impact the health and well-being of Latino youth and families. Ms. Damaris Encarnacion, a community member, will join to discuss the importance of this research to the immigrant community.

The event, From Policy to Psychology – How Immigration Actions and News Affect the Health and Mental Well-being of Latino Families, will be held on Oct. 17 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Busboys and Poets (Brookland Location) located at 625 Monroe St. NE in Washington, D.C. It is free and open to the public. Space is limited so registration is encouraged.
