Dr. Holly Sienkiewicz (Center for New North Carolinians) received new funding from The Cone Health Foundation for the “Immigrant Health ACCESS Project.” The abstract notes that typically, immigrants are uninsured and face multiple barriers to access appropriate and available health care. Immigrants often end up at the Hospital Emergency Departments for non-emergency health issues, and many who have real emergencies go without care. The project’s objective is to assist immigrants in gaining access to health care services and navigating the health systems by providing interpreters and community health workers.
