J Health Care Poor Underserved. 2007 Aug;18(3):510-5. doi: 10.1353/hpu.2007.0060.


Twenty-seven pediatric residents were assessed for knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors regarding rights of immigrant families. A program documenting immigrant rights was reinforced in the clinic with posters and individual consultations on immigrant children's needs. This brief program was effective in instructing residents on health and nutritional services for immigrant patients.
