I-18 - Mind the gap: Improving undocumented patients’ access to care
In our current political and social climate, a patient's access to care is influenced by their citizenship status. Physicians can improve care outcomes for patients, regardless of their citizenship status, by creating an inclusive care environment and decreasing barriers to accessing care. Join us to learn what you can do to improve care for members of this vulnerable population. If you have any questions, please contact us at 800-621-8335.
