About Us

Located in the heart of Harlem, the Center focuses on practical approaches to reduce health inequities in immigrant and refugee communities, both domestically and around the world. We aim to provide a scholarly basis for the development of healthy urban centers, equitable access to health services, and a deeper understanding of the linkages between migrant health and health disparities. 

The Global Migration Media Academy and the Global Migration Data Portal teams are joining forces to support journalists, media content creators, academics and other migration experts to improve their skills in consulting, analyzing and disseminating the latest migration statistics. Following completion of the webinar series, migration experts can take a quiz for a certificate of completion.


Participants can expect to learn to:

  • Search and compare data in the international data dashboard

  • Get 360-degree insights from migration data on topics and issues via thematic and spotlight pages

  • Search statistics in the national data section

  • Get the latest expert insights on the Portal Blog

  • Navigate critical aspects of migration data, including but not limited to sources, data types, definitions, data gaps and challenges, and data platforms

In this webinar, public health communicators will learn:
