The purpose of this study is to provide an in-depth assessment of the response of local rural health care systems to the needs of a growing Latino population in rural Midwest communities. The project used a qualitative case study approach to assess health care access issues for Latinos in rural communities in Iowa, Kansas, and Nebraska, and to document successful strategies that could be adopted by other communities facing similar challenges.
