D a tl. zen,/  ASSOCIATES IN MEDICINE, P.A. community center serving the Latino community of Sussex County, has introduced "La Red," a new health information hot line for Spanish speaking residents of Sussex County. La Red, which means "the network," is staffed by a bilingual operator who provides information and referrals for a host of Spanish-speaking physi- cians and social service providers. The brainchild of Seaford-based physician Francisco Rodriguez, Gonzalo Martineg of La Esperan- za and the Rev. Jim Lewis of the Sussex County Mission of the Episcopal Church, this hotline represents phase I of La Esperan- and Clinic Project, whose long- term goal is expanding health ser- vices to underserved communities in Sussex County. According to Lewis, Sussex County's rapidly growing Hispan- ic population has particular diffi- culty accessing health services. Language barriers, low levels of education and a lack of transporta- tion are some of the factors that prevent many in the community from seeking out health profes- sionals. "Without an adequate medical information and referral system in place, the Latino" com- munity is like a ship lost at sea in the fog," Lewis said.
