About the Conference
The Latino Health Equity Conferences at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) were hosted by the Hispanic Health Opportunities Learning Alliance (H2OLA) and the National Council of La Raza (NCLR)/CSULB Center for Latino Community Health, Evaluation, and Leadership Training. These five annual conferences aimed to raise awareness and engage CSULB faculty, staff, students, and the larger community in health equity research focused on Latinos – our nation’s largest and fastest-growing minority population.
The Latino Health Equity Conference provided a unique opportunity for interested students, community members, and professionals to collaborate with national thought leaders. Additionally, the conference invited abstract submissions from undergraduate, graduate, and health professions students for a poster session on health disparities or biomedical research.
