    Dr. David Hayes-Bautista in Radio Bilingüe: National Latino Public Radio Network: “Healing Farm Worker Trauma. Also, Preparing for the Next Public Health Crisis.”


    As the pandemic raged through California for the past year, Latinos died in disproportionate numbers due to structural inequalities such as lack of bilingual physicians, greater exposure to the virus in the workplace, crowded housing, and lack of health insurance. Dr. David Hayes-Bautista and researchers warn that if these structural inequalities are not remedied, the next pandemic will have the same tragic outcome for Latinos and other populations that supply so many essential workers to the state’s economy.
