    Dr. Parmar’s research has focused on the study of health and human rights violations in refugees and internally displaced populations. Dr. Parmar has supported health care for refugees and other vulnerable persons globally in multiple settings--on issues such as emergency care delivery, maternal and child health, gender-based violence, and primary care provision. In January 2017, Dr. Parmar founded Southern California Physicians for Health Equity, a group committed to protecting access to care for all patients, including undocumented immigrants; protecting gains made by the ACA; advocating for single payer health care; and advocating for politicians and legislation that serve patients' needs. Dr. Parmar is the Chief of the Division of Global Emergency Medicine at the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine, where she is an Associate Professor of Clinical Emergency Medicine.
