Abdi Nor Iftin, author of “Call Me American,” will join UNC School of Social Work live on Zoom to share his story of growing up in war-torn Somalia, escaping to Kenya and to the United States, and becoming a journalist and an American citizen.
Josh Hinson MSW, LCSW, Program Director of the School of Social Work’s UNC Refugee Mental Health and Wellness Initiative, will moderate the event and facilitate a Q&A session following Iftin’s presentation. Audience members will also learn more about the Refugee Mental Health and Wellness Initiative, which provides refugees in North Carolina with mental health services as they transition to life in the United States.
