Older Adult Immigrants Research Project
This summer, I will continue my work as a research assistant for the Older Adult Immigrants research project. The purpose of this project is to understand the effects of immigration status on older Mexican immigrants and their experiences during COVID-19. Eligible participants share their experiences via semi-structured interviews conducted in Mexico and California. We code interview transcripts and connect findings to emerging research themes.
