Dr. Holly Sienkiewicz

Dr. Holly Sienkiewicz (Center for New North Carolinians) received new funding from Cone Health Foundation for the project “Immigrant Health ACCESS Project.”

Immigrants are uninsured and face multiple barriers to access appropriate and available health care, the abstract notes. Immigrants often end up at the Hospital Emergency Departments for non-emergency health issues, and many who have real emergencies go without care.

This project will assist immigrants in gaining access to health care services and navigate the health systems by providing interpreters and community Health Workers.

Working in conjunction with the Guilford Community Care Network, the project will provide screening, assessment, and referral and identify to the uninsured and seek solutions to connect them to a local integrated health clinic.
