What will this webinar cover?
Newcomers who have recently arrived in the United States and the service providers who support them face many barriers in navigating the complex U.S. healthcare system, especially in the context of sexual and reproductive health. This training will review the sexual and reproductive healthcare needs and rights of newcomer youth. It will also identify resources for providing developmentally, culturally, and linguistically appropriate information for youth and their communities. The insights and resources provided by this webinar will help you build upon newcomers’ strengths to support them in accessing the sexual and reproductive healthcare information and services they need. Participants will also have the opportunity to ask questions of a panel composed of qualified experts on this topic.

Is this webinar for me?
This training is geared toward direct service staff–including case workers, medical case workers, and case managers–who are interested in gaining an introductory understanding of the different sexual and reproductive health needs and resources available for newcomer youth. This training is also relevant for community partners and sponsors providing initial resettlement assistance to newcomers.

  • Describe sexual and reproductive health needs of newcomer youth
  • Recognize common barriers to accessing sexual and reproductive healthcare among newcomer youth
