Abstract
The number of non-Spanish speaking indigenous farmworkers in the U.S. has steadily increased over the past decade. In addition to language barriers, indigenous workers have unique cultural and health beliefs that affect their access to care. Presenters discussed the demographics of indigenous Mexicans and Central Americans, with an emphasis on those living and working on the East Coast. Participants identified barriers to care and learned about a successful clinical model where an indigenous patient advocate has improved patient care and provider knowledge.
