Healthcare Access Barriers in Utah Muslim Communities

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

The purpose of this research is to examine how cultural barriers and health literacy are associated with access to care and communication with providers in Muslim communities in the United States. Cultural barriers, poor health literacy, and lack of access to care continue to remain prominent in underserved communities across the U.S. By identifying cultural differences that affect the care of Muslim patients, Healthcare providers are able to shorten the gap between barriers and access to care.
