Faculty Author Series: Assistant Professor Meredith Van Natta

Mar. 20, 2023 - 11:15am to Apr. 5, 2023 - 12:15pm

Assistant Professor of Sociology at UC Merced, Meredith Van Natta, will present her recent book, Medical Legal Violence: Healthcare and Immigration Enforcement Against Latinx Noncitizens. In this book, Van Natta discusses how many immigrants are excluded from medical benefits and health care programs due to enforcement of noncitizen laws in regards to acquiring health care services. Additionally, the work of Van Natta sheds light on how safety-net health care workers have helped noncitizen patients find medical care against the politcal opposition and severe consequences of helping immigrants. Please join us for a powerful discussion around the themes presented in this book and the continuing research around noncitizen access to health care. 

Medical Legal Violence: Healthcare and Immigration Enforcement Against Latinx Noncitizens can also be purcahsed on Amazon.
