Research Description

Addressing health care disparities by increasing primary care engagement of Latino parents

Research Impact

Dr. DeCamp's project, Research: Addressing health care disparities by increasing primary care engagement of Latino parents, will address health care disparities among Latino children through increasing the engagement of Limited English Proficient Latino parents. Specifically she’ll develop an in-person and technology-based support intervention designed to increase the skills, knowledge and confidence of LEP parents in accessing and using the health care system. Through a pilot randomized controlled trial, she will also compare the effectiveness of the intervention and usual care on the parents’ engagement during their child’s first year and examine its impact on health care utilization and primary care quality.
