Language barriers are just one of the many challenges facing the country's healthcare system.
La Clínica del Pueblo was featured in the PBS NewsHour "Critical Care: The Future of Nursing" series that aired on November 21, 2023. The segment focuses on how nurses are on the frontlines of critical care, language access and health equity.
Specifically, the feature highlighted the critical importance of patients receiving care or interpretation in their own language.
Watch to see our La Clínica staff in action and sharing perspectives, as well as research that supports the urgent need for more systems of care like those we provide.
