We were very saddened to hear about the passing of Leah Zallman on November 5, 2020. Leah was a valued partner, conducting research at the intersection of immigration and health care that powerfully countered anti-immigrant policy and rhetoric. We will endeavor to carry forth Leah's humility, passion, and vision for creating a more just society.
Leah was the director of research at the Institute for Community Health (ICH), a primary care physician at East Cambridge Care Center at Cambridge Health Alliance, and assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. She was a wife and mother to two young children. Read ICH’s tribute to Leah.
Below is the research she conducted for CHCF.
