Robbinsdale, MN — The Twin Cities is home to the largest population of Karen refugees outside of Burma/Thailand. The Karen face a huge adjustment to Western practices around housing and medicine. My goal is to develop a collaborative community network to address the health and equity concerns of Karen refugees by partnering with existing programs aiding Karen refugees in Minnesota to build on the strengths of the Karen people and those working with them.
