Health and Migration is a project started by the head of the sociology and anthropology department at my university. Initially, the project was introduced to me as the topic for my junior design class. Later, those of us who wished, continued working with the project head outside of class. Below is a sample of work from the project. Please, check back for more updates.
Icon illustrations depicting the main areas of migratory grief in four categories: 
(1) The grieving of family and friends
(2) The grieving of your native language and culture.
(3) The grieving of adjusting to a new climate and landscape.
(4) The grieving of experiencing descrimination, changes in social class and new health risks.
Difficulty communicating and being understood in a new language is one of the aspects of migratory grief or mourning.
A few initial sketches for my migratory grief illustrations.
