We created a flier that contained resources within the area that offer services at low to no cost
32% of the members of this community are uninsured (New Mexico Community Data Collaborative)
Mental health care, substance abuse treatment centers, primary care providers and social work
It contained the locations, phone numbers, hours of operation, services provided, and the cost of services for each clinic
English and Spanish versions of the flier were offered as we are aware that 37% of this community is Spanish speaking (New Mexico Community Data Collaborative)
We also created the flier to be understandable at a sixth grade reading level

Risks for minorities
Genetic predisposition to certain diseases
Decreased likelihood to have health insurance
A decreased likelihood to have regular primary care providers

Contributing factors to health disparities
Community settings with increased rates of substance abuse, violence, and stress

Reduction if healthcare disparities can be reduced by
Providing individuals with information about accessible healthcare, healthcare promotions, and encouraging individuals to obtain “usual primary care providers” (Richardson & Norris).
