Thank you for registering for the 4th Annual Latino Health Equity Conference. We are very excited to present stellar speakers, stimulating panels, and what should be a very informative and fun event. The conference is this Friday, April 17th, from 8 am - 5 pm at the University Student Union (USU) Ballrooms located on the second floor (if you enter from the North side of the USU). There will be direction signs and ushers located around the USU to guide you. The Long Beach Grand Prix also starts this Friday, so please allow extra time for driving and avoid the downtown area. This is a map highlighting the closest parking for conference attendees and the location of the USU. If you do not have a parking pass, general parking is $5.00.
This year’s theme is “Del Saber al Poder: From Knowledge to Action.” Speakers include health innovators like 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. Marta Epeldegui (UCLA AIDS Institute), Dr. Marta Epeldegui (UCLA), Gaspar Hernán Orozco Ríos (Ventanillas de Salud - Mexico), and Dr. Selena Nguyen-Rodriguez (CSULB). These speakers will discuss topics that include environmental health, sexual health, obesity prevention, minority leadership, and much more. See agenda on the About page for details.
We will also be joined by Grupo Folklórico Mexica after lunch for a brief performance. Finally, 60 students will be presenting their work in our Student Poster Session and look forward to speaking with you.
If you have any questions this week, or even on the day of the conference, please call us at (562) 985-5312 or email us at CHHS-H2OLA@csulb.edu. We look forward to seeing you this Friday!- Latino Health Equity Conference Planning Committee
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 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.
