As the coronavirus pandemic sweeps throughout the U.S., one personal and political issue is taking center stage for most: the cost of and access to quality healthcare.

Statistically, Latinos and other disadvantaged groups experience some of the worst outcomes of those concerns. Moreover, experts say it will only get worse as this outbreak endures.

Earlier this year and prior to the spread of COVID-19, Dr. Mateo Benegas, a health services researcher at the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research, joined Salud Talks to address these issues and how the healthcare system is serving and not serving all patients equally.

In this episode, we explore questions such as:

  • Define what delivery, costs, and value in terms of cancer care mean for our audience?
  • Do these economic hardships make it harder for the Latino community to receive care?
  • What can everyday individuals do to advocate for better practices in addressing the current state of delivery, costs, and value in terms of cancer care?
