Spanish Language Materials for Consumers

These resources provide information about conditions, diseases, diagnostic tests, and treatments, in English and Spanish. All resources have made an effort to create materials which can be read and understood by someone without advanced education in the health sciences; however, we recommend reviewing any material and making your own decision about its relevance and understandability before providing it to a patient.
