Did you know that about one in six people living in the United States is Hispanic?
The Hispanic and Latino community has unique health risks that many times go untreated due to barriers to health care. These barriers may include language, inadequate access to quality care, education, discrimination and income.
Norton Healthcare Prevention & Wellness wants to improve the lives of our Hispanic and Latino community members by breaking down these barriers through improving access to screenings and medical care.
