UC Davis Students help Afghan Refugees Navigate Life in Sacramento

We would like to highlight the involvement of GMC Affiliate Patrick Marius Koga in Refugee Interprofessional Community Engagement (RICE), a program in collaboration with University of the Pacific and nonprofit Opening Doors that's assisting Afghan refugees in Sacramento to adjust to their new lives.
