Minneapolis has taken in waves of immigrants with distinctive patterns of beliefs about health.
The New York Times released this 7-minute video entitled Translating Health Care documenting the importance of language assistance services and the commitment by a Minneapolis hospital to ensure Somali and Spanish-speaking limited English proficient (LEP) patients are provided culturally and linguistically appropriate care. The focus is health care service, but the principle of ensuring meaningful access to programs and services is universal.
