About the Conference
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. This year’s theme is “Growing Healthy Cultures: Manteniendo Tradiciones Saludables.” This year’s speakers include such health innovators as Hortencia Amaro (USC), Jose Luis Calderon (Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science, Los Angeles) and more to come.
