Please register for the next MHRC’s mentorship meeting on Friday, February 25, 2022 from 2-4 pm. MHRC is a project of ICAAP’s Refugee Immigrant Child Health Initiative. Gary Mart, MD will present two psychological forensic evaluations for asylum cases (one a minor and the other a young, transgendered adult) and discuss the challenges of conducting the evaluations virtually amidst the COVID pandemic. Dr. Mart has over 25 years of experience working with immigrants and refugees, including those seeking asylum at the Marjorie Kovler Institute. He has been providing clinical services to unaccompanied minors at Heartland Alliance and has been conducting political asylum evaluations for MHRC, NIJC and their LGBTQ Immigrant Rights Initiative for the past five years. Following the presentation there will be time for a Q&A/Discussion.
