Authors: Bachman, S., Manning, L., Wilson, K., Kantner, J., Comeau, M.

Date: 2018

Project: The Catalyst Center

Keywords: CYSHCN, Financial Hardship, Health Equity

On February 13th at the 2018 Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs (AMCHP) conference the Catalyst Center presented the results of four focus groups that were conducted with parents of children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) who are from the Somali community in Boston, focusing on accessing health care for their CYSHCN.

In the context of the focus group results, we also provided results of interviews conducted with representatives of state Offices of Minority Health. We presented information on innovative strategies states are using to mitigate inequities and discussed how these strategies could address the barriers the families identified. The session was recorded, and the video will also be available here in the coming months.
