North Aurora Immigrant and Refugee Demographic Profile (October 2015): This demographic profile was created by the Piton Foundation for Aurora Health Access’s Immigrant and Refugee Children’s Health Task force, a subgroup of AHA’s Pediatric Access Work Group. The aim was to fill a gap in immigrant/refugee demographic data for the 80010, 80011, 80012, 80017 zip codes in North Aurora in order to better understand the community and address relevant issues.
