Health care and the Latinx experience

“Knowing that an important number of Latinx are not yet fully vaccinated and understanding the health care gaps and social disparities that affect this group, it is reasonable to assume that the Latinx community will be disproportionately affected by the pain and sorrow of the new wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. More efforts and resources need to be designated to continue educating and empowering the Latinx community to comply with vaccination and other well-proven preventive measures that will protect them from COVID-19 and its devastating consequences now and in the future. In addition, medical schools, societies, and other related health care institutions need to become more socially and culturally aware and advocate for a diverse, inclusive health care system that promotes equity and reduces disparities.”

Miriam Zylberglait Lisigurski is an internal medicine physician. Ricardo Correa is an endocrinologist.

They share their stories and discuss the KevinMD article, “COVID-19 vaccination: the Latinx experience.”
