Cone Health Foundation funds Bailey for Immigrant Health ACCESS Project

Repost from Campus Weekly

Dr. Raleigh Bailey (Office of Research and Economic Development) received new funding from the Cone Health Foundation for the project “Immigrant Health ACCESS Project.” Immigrants are uninsured and face multiple barriers to access appropriate and available health care and often end up at the hospital emergency departments for non-emergency health issues, and many who have real emergencies go without care, the abstract explains. The project will assist immigrants in gaining access to health care services and navigate the health systems by providing interpreters and community health workers. In conjunction with the Guilford Community Care Network, the project will provide case management and identify the uninsured and seek solutions to connect them to a primary care facility.
