Community Solutions for Health Equity for Latino Families of Children with Special Health Care Needs

Wednesday, October 26, 2022 – Latino families of children with special health care needs (CSHCN) often face additional systemic, cultural and linguistic barriers that limit their ability to access supportive services and resources. Culturally and linguistically appropriate solutions are needed to help reduce health disparities in this at-risk population. Padres e Hijos en Acción, in partnership with the Waisman Center University Center of Excellence in Developmental Disabilities Education, Research, and Service (UCEDD) at UW Madison, leads a Community Solutions for Health Equity (CSHE) initiative to address these challenges in Dane County, Wisconsin.

At October’s Bright Spot webinar, Hector Portillo, the director of Padres e Hijos en Acción, discussed the innovative ways the CSHE initiative is increasing access to culturally and linguistically appropriate health care for Latino families of CSHCN.
