The Society of Refugee Healthcare Providers offers several member benefits:
- Access to our Listserv: There are over 2,000 subscribers to our Listserv. Messages go out several times a week and members can connect with experts in the field to discuss an unlimited number of refugee healthcare topics.
- Discounted registration for the U.S.- based North American Refugee Health Conference (NARHC): The Society offers one hundred dollars off the registration fee for the U.S.-based NARHC. We anticipate that we will be able to offer a similar discount for the Canadian-based NARHC that will be held in Toronto in 2019.

The winning author receives a $500 award from the Society in addition to a guarantee of publication in the Journal of Immigrant and Minority Health. The runner-up receives the publication opportunity and is awarded $250.
