Five on Friday Public Charge


Proposed new rules on public charge, the first-ever United Nations High Level Meeting on Tuberculosis, Hurricane Florence recovery, and numerous other migrant health-related stories weighed down our thoughts this week. We send our gratitude to the thousands of clinicians who are on the frontlines of these issues, lending their time, expertise, and hearts to caring for some of the most vulnerable in the world. Here are a few of the many articles we shared this week. What did you read? Let us know on Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter.
