Latinos y la Salud: Health and Nourishment in Our Community |
Authorities in the field and related advocacy will impart their insights on the intersection of Latinos and health. We are aware that Hispanics disparately suffer from such major afflictions as heart and kidney disease, diabetes and obesity, even COVID-19, to name a few. Panelists will elaborate on these, and on tools and resources available in order to navigate affordable health care. As well as challenges to accessing proper or preventive care as a result of language barriers, and income inequality.Click Here to Register for the Conference
