New Website for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Health Care Services

A new website from the Virginia Department of Health, CLAS Act (, is designed to help health care workers respond to the needs of new refugees and immigrants in a culturally appropriate manner. The Web site offers links to resources to help health-care workers understand cultural differences that may affect delivery of health-care services to immigrants. It also provides translations such as these to help health-care workers take care of patients who speak only Spanish. Richmond Times-Dispatch
