HEALTH CONSCIOUS HISPANICS

HEALTH CONSCIOUS HISPANICS

Because of a historical mistrust in government and healthcare agencies among many Hispanics living in the United States, The National Cancer Institute and LIVESTRONG have partnered up to fund The Patient Navigator Research Program–a program dedicated to bridging the gap between healthcare and the community. The initiative works by implementing community leaders as "navigators" and stationing them in different cancer centers in cities with large Hispanic populations. Those navigators or "promotoras," as some of the female ones call themselves, then help patrons fill out medical documents, translate important information, answer questions, and overall empower decisions concerning their care.
