Seeking narratives of immigrants & sickness/healthcare


A colleague who is not familiar with oral history is seeking narratives of immigrants' experience with illness/healthcare for a course she is teaching. I believe there must be some oral history collections containing such narratives! If anyone knows of any or has suggestions about where to look for such, I'd appreciate hearing about them. Feel free to reach me off-list at Alison.Bateman-House@nyumc.org

Thank you in advance,

Nunn Center for Oral History to make oral history interviews more accessible on the web.
