For more than 10 years, Puentes de Salud has approached medicine holistically. This medical clinic, which means Bridges of Health, provides medical care, education classes, and social services for South Philadelphia’s Latino population. Many of the immigrant communities who utilize these services face poverty and other severe challenges. Rather than waiting for trauma to occur, Puentes de Salud works to prevent illness through education and to offer supportive services, with respect and dignity, serving as a model for other health care providers.
