dc.description.abstractThis report provides a first-ever look at the health care needs, challenges, and realities of newly emerging Latino communities in the southern U.S. Based on focus group research and primary interviews with health care providers in Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee, the study also includes a literature review and highlights of a regional meeting with key stakeholders from throughout the South.  Findings show that Latinos in the South are reluctant to use public health care programs and facilities due to barriers such as lack of information about available services, lack of insurance, insufficient numbers of bilingual, bicultural personnel, and disparate treatment.
