On the Border

Late last year, second-year Geisel School of Medicine student Sarah Rosenstein traveled to Tijuana, Mexico with Border Angels, a San Diego-based non-profit that advocates for human rights, humane immigration reform, and social justice. The group of volunteer doctors, nurses, physician-assistants, and nurse-practitioners staff a weekly clinic to care for migrants seeking asylum in the U.S.
