Health Equity

Importance

Latinas are among the highest rates of uninsured in the United States. Combined with issues concerning lack of culturally appropriate care, preventative care and participation in clinical trials, as well as certain high disease rates, these are urgent topics for our community. Access for our communities to linguistic and culturally appropriate information and resources remain high priorities.
