Clínica de Migrantes: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness 

Synopsis:  Clínica de Migrantes is a medical drama about a year in the life of Puentes de Salúd, one of a few health clinics in the U.S. dedicated to providing quality culturally-responsive healthcare to undocumented immigrant populations. At Puentes, a team of volunteers led by Dr. Steve Larson attend to an ever-growing population of housekeepers, prep cooks, and construction workers in South Philadelphia. Many come to Puentes after being turned away at other health care clinics and hospitals.
