Abstract

Many studies have investigated the health care experiences of Somali women. However, there is little research that looks at Somali women’s experiences with language barriers and their language preferences. In my capstone, I explore language barriers in the health care system from the perspective of non-English speaking immigrant Somali women with children living in the Lewiston-Auburn area.
