Latino Health Program Office
(828) 268-8962
Latino Health Program Office Hours
Monday - Friday
9:00 am - 4:00 pm


The Latino Health Program of Appalachian Regional Healthcare System seeks to improve the health and well-being of Latinos in Watauga and Avery counties through increased access to care, health education, and other enabling services.

The Latino Health Program is funded through a grant from the North Carolina Office of Minority Health and Health Disparities (OMHHD). Our vision is to improve the health of the local Latino population; specifically, the grant focuses on improving patients’ management and understanding of their own health in order to prevent illness and to manage current illnesses.

Latinos are disproportionately affected by certain health conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and overweight/obesity. They may also experience difficulty accessing health services due to language, transportation, cultural and financial barriers.

The Latino Health Program aims to address these health concerns and barriers by connecting with the local population, providing a variety of services including referrals to existing medical providers, enabling services (such as interpretation and transportation to medical appointments), care coordination, health education and community outreach.

Through these services we hope to address health disparities in our community, and ultimately make our community a healthier place to live.

For more information or to refer a patient to the Latino Health Program’s services, please call (828) 268-8967 or (828) 268-8962.
