Global Crossroads Special Event:
Born a Refugee: Low Birth Weight of Syrian Neonates Delivered in Lebanese Hospitals


Every day, we hear news about Syrian refugees as they arrive in surrounding Arab countries and elsewhere seeking safety. Refugee status can have a long lasting impact on health. Dr. Abdulrahim is analyzing birth outcomes of Syrian refugees who deliver in Lebanese hospitals and will share some initial findings of this work.

Dr. Abdulrahim holds a Master of Public Health in Epidemiology from San Diego State University and PhD in Health Behavior and Health Education from the University of Michigan, School of Public Health. Her research interests include social inequalities, gender, aging, and health; health among refugees and low-wage migrant communities; and subjective evaluations of health.
