Cooper Conversation: Healthcare & Housing

At this Cooper Conversation, we will hear from community advocates working to improve access to healthcare and housing, with a focus on supporting refugees and immigrants. The topic ties to this year’s E.N. Thompson Forum on World Issues theme, "Uprooted: Displacement, Migration and Searching for Home."

Featured guests will briefly share their stories and perspectives, and then continue the conversation in small groups with students.

  • Kathy Najjar, PhD, Refugee Employee Assistant Program Manager, ELL Instructor, Center for People
  • Kelsey Arends, Healthcare Access Program Staff Program, Nebraska Appleseed
  • Caroline Nebel, Refugee Housing Coordinator, Catholic Social Services
