Description:

There is a growing health care crisis in the United States and some groups are particularly vulnerable. This August 2008 report from the Pew Hispanic Center looks into the challenges faced by Hispanics in terms of their access and information about health care, and their findings will be of great use to public health researchers, journalists, and others. The 81-page report was written by Gretchen Livingston, Susan Minushkin, and D'Vera Cohn, and their work was supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The report is divided into four chapters, an executive summary, and two appendices. Chapters in the report include "How Much Do Hispanics Know About Diabetes?" and "Sources of Information on Health and Health Care". A number of the findings are a bit troubling, including the fact that more than one-fourth of Hispanic adults in the United States lack a regular health care provider.
