“All of our patients, but especially our most vulnerable Spanish-speaking patients, need to hear concrete, meaningful, and practical instructions on how to care for each other when they live in large multi-generational families, and positive stories from people who have successfully managed infection with COVID-19. They need to hear that, as their physicians, we are here for them. I want them to know that when they are sick, their immigration or insurance status is not my concern. My concern and my oath are to the patient in front of me, and to the community I love.”
Susan Lopez is an internal medicine physician.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “The impact of COVID on the Hispanic community.”
