Dr. Jim Stimpson, assistant professor, Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences, University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth (UNTHSC) School of Public Health, has been quoted in the New York Times and interviewed by other news media sources regarding a study he published in Health Affairs indicating that immigrants are not a health care cost burden, despite widely held beliefs to the opposite.  Dr. Stimpson’s research, titled, “Trends in Health Care Spending for Immigrants in the United States,” was co-authored with Dr. Fernando Wilson, UNTHSC assistant professor of Health Management and Policy, and Dr. Karl Eschbach, internal medicine professor at the University of Texas School of Medicine, Galveston.
