On April 11, Princeton AlumniCorps and Appleseed hosted a webinar presentation and Q/A on the topic of trauma and mental health in immigrant and refugee communities, featuring two experts in the field. More than 160 viewers from all over the United States tuned in to listen and learn from Dr. Usha Tummala-Narra and Dr. Maria Nardone about the various aspects of trauma, including the effects of the current political climate on mental wellness and the generational impact of chronic stress on immigrant families.
