Survey Looks at Health Issues of Mexican Immigrants

By Kelley Weiss


Kansas City, MO – It's not always easy to get accurate data on how immigrants in the Kansas City area access health care. But that information plays an important role in debates about health and immigration policy, both locally and statewide. University of Missouri organization Alianzas has been collecting surveys, specifically about Mexican immigrants and migrant workers in the region. Health reporter Kelley Weiss talked with an Alianzas coordinator, Katy Fields, about some of the survey results.
