The Somalian refugee population of Lewiston, Maine has grown in size since 2001 and continues to flourish in this once struggling city. Increasing provider understanding of this unique population will help foster the delivery of optimal primary care to minority patients. As one of the core values of family medicine, understanding our patients beyond their illness is paramount to providing quality health care.
