Journal Article

Summary: Women of color and immigrant women are more likely than U.S.-born white women to report mistreatment and poor quality of care during their reproductive health care. Surprisingly, little research exists on how language access may impact immigrant women's experiences of maternity care, particularly by race and ethnicity.

Researchers conducted qualitative in-depth, one-on-one semi-structured interviews from August 2018 to August 2019 with 10 Mexican and eight Chinese/Taiwanese women living in Los Angeles or Orange County who gave birth within the past 2 years. Interviews were transcribed and translated, and data were initially coded based on the interview guide questions. Authors identified patterns and themes using thematic analysis methods.

Journal Article
Studies conducted before, during, and immediately after the 2007–2010 foreclosure crisis found that while homeownership is associated with better health-related outcomes for white households, that association is weaker or non-existent for African-American and Latinx households. Authors examine the relationship between homeownership and health and whether that relationship differs by race/ethnicity in the period since the foreclosure crisis.
