U.S. travel ban could hurt health care
February 15, 2017
President Trump’s travel ban and immigration policy may be an abstraction for some, but for health care they could have profound effects. These policies have already hurt work at the Swedish Neuroscience Institute, and at the Seattle Science Foundation, which is deeply involved in research to innovate and advance health care.
Hundreds of doctors from around the world come to the institute and the foundation every year to train and collaborate on research. But many doctors have canceled their plans since the president announced his new policies. We don’t want to lose those partnerships, or the momentum we have in working to solve health problems that affect so many people.
This video explains what’s happening, what it could mean and what we can all do.
