Promoting the Health and Well-Being of Children in Immigrant Families in the Post-Pandemic Economic Recovery Efforts, a workshop jointly hosted by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine Forum for Children's Well-Being and the Brandeis University Institute for Child, Youth, and Family Policy on April 21, 2021, explored the research evidence on the access immigrant families have to U.S. social programs and its effects on children's mental, emotional, behavioral, and physical well-being. During this workshop, three speakers discussed the negative health impacts of current social policies on children, and highlighted promising public policy approaches to mitigate these impacts and promote children's well-being. This Proceedings of a Workshop-in Brief provides a high-level summary of the topics addressed in the workshop and policy options presented by the speakers that could better support children in immigrant families.
