The North American Refugee Health Conference is recognized as the premier conference for those who work with refugee populations.

2015 Conference

From its humble beginnings, the North American Refugee Health Conference (NARHC), has expanded to become one of the largest clinical conferences on refugee health globally. Our scope has broadened to include local and international refugee issues.

Health professionals and experts from many disciplines, will meet to discuss the best health practices, challenges for optimal care, research and advocacy for the refugee patient population both pre and post migration. The latest research on refugee health issues will be profiled as both novices and experts share ideas with local and international colleagues.

Come share and learn with us in Toronto in June 2015
