The clinic’s Cultural Health Navigators are more than just interpreters. They go above and beyond to help refugee women navigate the complicated and confusing US healthcare system. Intensive care coordination is key to removing the barriers that may hinder a woman’s access to care. The ultimate goal is to deliver the tools that patients will need to successfully attain optimal health as they move forward with their new lives in the U.S. This includes home visits, appointment reminders, coordination of transportation, insurance coverage assistance, advocacy to various social services, and much more.
