Paula Andaló — The Quest to Bring Spanish Language to KHN
About 37 million people in the United States speak Spanish at home and consume information in Spanish, according to one estimate.
Knowing this, and building on decades of experience as a health journalist, ethnic media editor Paula Andaló developed a strategy to bring KHN’s coverage to Spanish speakers. She has forged partnerships with Spanish-language news outlets across the United States and in Latin American countries.
“I see this job as a mission,” said Andaló. “We offer reliable health content for free and KHN delivers that information in the way Spanish speakers feel most comfortable consuming it.”
