Guía de Recursos de Salud Para Latinos
Los latinos son el grupo étnico de más rápido crecimiento en los Estados Unidos, pero siguen siendo en gran parte desatendidos, desde el punto de vista de la atención médica. Algunos de los factores socioeconómicos que contribuyen a que los hispanos no reciban la atención médica que necesitan, incluyen:
- – Barreras lingüísticas
- – Falta de seguro de salud de parte del empleador
- – Aculturación
- – Falta de transporte
- – Escasez de alimento, ayuda médica y dental
En un esfuerzo por ayudar a los latinos, hemos recopilado una guía llena de recursos estatales y nacionales para muchos de los mayores riesgos de atención médica que enfrenta la comunidad hispana.

We now have operations throughout the state of Wisconsin, as well as in Minnesota, Texas and South Dakota.
We will continue to explore opportunities in our four main areas of concentration: migrant programs and services, health promotion/disease prevention, welfare reform/workforce development and cultural events.
