Description For underserved populations, breaking down barriers in order to seek quality healthcare may be a difficult task. Studies have concluded that minorities and multiethnic populations are among the highest risk of populations in the United States. Among the populations most at risk include Latinos, African Americans, low-income families, Hispanics, refugees, and children. The minority and multiethnic populations served by University Neighborhood Partners (UNP) in Salt Lake City are no different. They are among those at greatest risk for eye and vision problems. To address this issue facing the UNP community, and specifically the community served by UNP's Hartland Center, I completed an Integrated Service Project (lSP) on their behalf. The ISP included sections on education about the eye and the basic eye exam, local vision care providers and details about their services, public transportation to different provider locations, Medicare plans, Medicaid plans, and other available resources. UNP's Hartland Center staff and its community will utilize the manual that was created. The Integrated Service Project was very successful. The purpose of the manual is to educate community members about the importance of proper eye care and to encourage annual eye examinations for all. My hope is the manual will help to decrease the barriers restricting individuals from such practices.
