Abstract

ABSTRACT: Knowledge of health practices and concerns is one key to providing culturally sensitive care to persons of different ethnicities. It is estimated that Guatemala is the third leading source of undocumented immigrants in the U.S. To increase understanding of Guatemalan healthcare issues, a descriptive study asked what are common healthcare issues among rural, indigenous Guatemalans and Guatemalan immigrants to the United States, and how do these issues compare?
