The Welcome Back Initiative (WBI) is presented with the 2011 E Pluribus Unum Prizes award for exceptional immigrant integration from the Migration Policy Institute's National Center on Immigrant Integration Policy. With generous support from the J.M. Kaplan Fund, the award honors the San Francisco-based Welcome Back Initiative for its work assisting foreign-trained health professionals living in the United States enter the health care workforce at their skill level. WBI helps skilled immigrants -- from centers in nine states -- obtain U.S. credentials or advanced language skills they need to join a health care sector experiencing worker shortages and increased demands as the nation's population ages. Accepting the award is its Founder and Director José Ramón Fernández-Peña.
