From the Paper:

"The largest and fastest growing minority aggregate in the United States today is commonly referred to as Hispanic or Latino. The U.S. census defines someone Hispanic or Latino as a person of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture of origin regardless of race. For the purpose of this paper and assessment tool this aggregate will be referred to as Hispanic. Immigration trends have contributed heavily to the increases in the U.S. Latino population. A relative lack of jobs in Mexico have driven Mexicans north in search of work. Today one in three farm workers are new to the United States, with most of them coming from Mexico (Peterson-Iyer, 2008). Despite the large and rapidly increasing size of the Hispanic population in the U.S., the number of Hispanic physicians dramatically lags behind. This variance contributes too many different linguistic and cultural hurdles for Hispanic patients trying to access the healthcare system, and their healthcare providers (Peterson-Iyer, 2008)."
