From the UC Davis Western Center for Agricultural Health and Safety:

Erin Hamilton, PhD, Associate Professor, Department of Sociology at UC Davis will give the next seminar on Monday, February 5, at 4pm.

Erin Hamilton studies when, why, and how people migrate, and with what consequences for migrants, their families, and the communities they leave and enter. Most of her research has focused on Mexico-U.S. migration, with studies of why and how rates of emigration vary across communities in Mexico, how the migration of family and community members affects the health of children in Mexico, and children’s role in migration. She also has studied the family structures of Salvadoran deportees, the indebtedness of Cambodian migrants, and the health of immigrants of all backgrounds in the United States. She is currently working on two projects – a book about population health in the United States and a series of research papers on child and family migration.

WCAHS seminars are held the first Monday of the month at 4:00 p.m. at the Center for Health and the Environment.  Find directions to CHE here.
