Kenan-Biddle Partnership grant to help improve health and wellness among refugee communities


AA&D, in partnership with students and researchers at Duke University and the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill, are working on an initiative addressing health and wellness among refugee communities in the Triangle area thanks to a Kenan-Biddle Partnership grant. While many state-supported services are available upon arrival, few are sustained beyond the first six months. Long-term, community-based support for refugee communities is often patchwork at best, leading to significant gaps in access to critical health and social services. This collaborative initiative aims to address these issues to improve overall refugee services.
