Interpretation Services and Healthcare Access for Patients with LEP: Perspectives from the Community

Medical School/Institution:
Project Location/Site: New Orleans, LA
Key Outcomes:
Our project sought out to evaluate the experience of patients with LEP in the New Orleans region. Patients with LEP have difficulties in obtaining care in New Orleans based on survey responses. Patients with LEP, especially those who are self-pay are less likely to receive immunizations, have a higher chance of an ED visit, and have longer wait times in the ED.
