Registration for the 4th Annual Latino Health Equity Conference is now open.
The Latino Health Equity Conference at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) is 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. This conference aims 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 conference will bring together an array of national researchers and leaders with multiple perspectives on the issues that most impact Latino health.
This year's theme is "Del Saber a Poder: From Knowledge to Action." This year's speakers include such health innovators as Dr. Ralph DiClemente (Emory University), Dr. Britt Rios-Ellis (CSUMB), Dr. Frank Meza (Kaiser Permanente), Dr. Paul Jaurez (University of Tennessee Health Science Center), Dr. Debra Joy Perez (Annie E. Casey Foundation), Dr. Corey Garza (CSUMB), Dr. Marta Epeldegui (UCLA) and more. We will discuss such topics and their relationship to health disparities as HIV/STI prevention, health care, youth violence, minority leadership, marine environmental impact, health for rural populations and much more.p>
The Latino Health Equity Conference provides a unique opportunity for interested students, community members, and professionals to collaborate with national thought leaders. Additionally, the conference invites abstract submissions from undergraduate, graduate, and health professions students for a poster session on health disparities or biomedical research.
