Helping Latino Immigrant Families Navigate The Health Care System


Lack of insurance, difficulty finding bilingual medical providers, fear of being detained by federal agents--all these barriers push Baltimore’s Latino community away from adequate health care. To bridge these gaps, Centrol SOL at Johns Hopkins Bayview offers clinical care, advocacy, and education.

Executive Director Monica Guerrero-Vazquez explains the importance of culturally competent care. And Centro SOL co-founder, Dr. Kathleen Page describes the chilling effect of fear. And Raquel Rojas shares her experience in a Centro SOL support group.
