Conoce las Preguntas, (Know the Questions), AHRQ's new, multimedia Spanish-language campaign, encourages Hispanics to get more involved in their health care and to talk with their doctors about their medical concerns. The campaign offers tips to help Hispanics prepare for medical appointments by thinking ahead of time about questions to ask their doctors.
