This 4 year longitudinal, urban, multi-method ethnographic study will examine cross cultural healthcare encounters. The study will identify, describe and situate how families contribute to the production of culturally responsive care and the strategies families and practitioners employ to establish commonality, bridge difference, and effectively “partner up.” This is a continuation of Boundary Crossing: A Longitudinal and Ethnographic Study (R01 HD 38878, 2000-2004).
