Race, Language, and Trust: Patient-Provider Encounters in New Mexico

In our latest report, "Race at the Periphery, Language at the Center: Examining Patient-Provider Encounters in New Mexico," we examine how race and language are primary driving factors in building trust and satisfaction between patients and providers in New Mexico.

This research brief is just one of many briefs that will be published throughout the year that utilizes data  from "The New Landscapes of a Majority-Minority State: Politics, Economy, Health, and Well-Being" Survey. We hope that the results from our survey will help provide further insight into the social determinants of health in New Mexico as well as increase the knowledge need to create effective public policy that addresses those needs.
