How the UNC Chapel Hill Latino Transplant Clinic is increasing access through culturally competent care. UNC Chapel Hill Latino Transplant Clinic, Part 1

Featuring Transplant Social Worker Daniela Matz and clinic founder Dr. Pablo Serrano.

In our last episode we met José and Xiomara Flores and heard about their five-year journey from kidney disease diagnosis to their live donor transplant, which took place at the University of North Carolina Transplant Latino Transplant Clinic. The clinic is the culmination of a very intentional vision, a strategic decision to integrate a Latino-focused Transplant Clinic within the Abdominal Transplant Division at UNC Chapel Hill. Since being established in 2018, they have gone on to demonstrate how workforce diversity and cultural competency go hand in hand in the delivery of quality care.

In today’s episode, transplant social worker Daniela Matz and clinic founder Dr. Pablo Serrano look back on Jose and Xiomara’s story, share with us insights into how the clinic works, and how they have been able to reduce renal transplant disparities.

All views and opinions expressed in this podcast reflect those of the participants.
