In Summer 2019, our research team completed a scoping review of published articles and practitioner-focused grey literature to learn more about the intersections between immigration and health in the United States. Our research questions were: 1) What does the literature tell us about immigration and health equity in the US? and 2) What does the literature tell us about the role of immigration status as a social determinant of health? Mental health and wellbeing among immigrant communities emerged as key themes.
