The event is a collaboration between Michigan Medicine, Jewish Family Services of Washtenaw County and the U-M School of Social Work.

The two-day symposium at the Rackham Graduate Building will consider the most significant aspects in the present international and domestic refugee system with four tracks, including: Impact and Integration; Transformative Practice; Health and Wellness; and Policy and Advocacy.

There will be presentations by academic experts, policy-makers, nonprofit social services professionals and government officials — all of whom will analyze the limitations in the present refugee system and discuss ways of overcoming these constraints.
