The Challenges and Barriers Encountered by the Hispanic Community in Healthcare and Beyond

Today on TownHall, Karla Arzola, Director of Information Technology - Swedish Medical Center at HealthONE speaks with Eric Quiñones, Chief Healthcare Advisor at World Wide Technology about their heritage and challenges the Hispanic community face when seeking care and in other aspects of life. As Karla points out 20% of the US population is Hispanic and that is set to increase to 30% by 2050, but the percentage of Hispanic physicians is a staggeringly low 2.5%. What role does language play in relation to healthcare and education for this population now and in the future? What are other societal and environmental issues Hispanics are facing right now? What is one thing Eric recommends to help uplift the community specifically in the healthcare space?
