Here’s How the Travel Ban Could Affect Your Health

“Here is an interesting detail about Trump’s new executive order on immigration: Thousands of America’s doctors hail from the six affected countries,” AJ Willingham writes for CNN.

“According to the Immigrant Doctors Project, headed by researchers from Harvard and MIT, more than 7,000 physicians in the US were trained in a country blacklisted under the new immigration order.”

“Cities and states in the Midwest have a high concentration of doctors whose backgrounds mean they would be affected by the new travel ban. Again, it’s not just about the doctors themselves — it’s also about the patients they treat. Other than California and New York, which top the list by population density and diversity alone, the states that rely most on physicians trained in travel ban countries are Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Florida.”
