Description

This experiential narrative seeks to acknowledge the voices of non-English fluent Spanish speakers by documenting their past experiences with healthcare service and accessibility in the United States. The interviews will elicit personal stories, challenges, and thoughts regarding language barriers. My findings will reveal whether healthcare service providers are equipped and prepared for Spanish speakers, not leaving them with their essential needs unmet due to the reparable yet not acted upon setback of a language barrier.
