Another Barrier to Health Care for Latinos

Latinos in California face a number of barriers when it comes to health care. For many of us, there is a language barrier that blocks access to quality health care. For others, it is the neighborhoods that we live in, where it’s easier to find a liquor store or a fast food restaurant than it is to find a fresh produce stand or pharmacy. For too large a number of California Latinos, an income barrier means we rely on state programs for our health care coverage.
