This week we welcome Perla Nunes, community outreach director at Greater Gift. Ecuadorian-born Perla is passionate about diversity – with specific focus on the Hispanic community. During this episode, she explains how Greater Gift is encouraging a new generation of leaders from diverse backgrounds through its scholarship program and why bilingual staff are key to build trust among patients.
“I always ask if studies are offered in Spanish. The response I always get is, 'yes, everything has been translated to Spanish, IRB approved, and they have everything set up in Spanish.' So my follow up question is: 'The enrollment sites, do they have bilingual staff?'"
