Latino Health Resource Guide

Latinos are the fastest growing ethnic group in the United States, but remain largely underserved from a health care standpoint. Some of the socioeconomic factors that contribute to Hispanics not receiving the health care they need include:

  • Language barriers
  • Lack of employer health insurance
  • Acculturation
  • Lack of transportation
  • Food/medical/dental deserts

In an effort to help, compiled a guide full of state and national resources for many of the biggest health care risks faced by the Latino community. Consult the list of nationwide resources found on their site or click on your state to see a list of health care resources near you. Resources are available in both English and Spanish by clicking on the "En Español" button at the top of the page.

For use at home and when meeting with a health care provider, download the Important Health Care and Insurance Terms glossary (also found on the site), which includes important English and Spanish terms that you may need to know when seeking medical help or insurance information.
