About the Latino Health Forum

The forum is a valuable platform for individuals working in health care, social justice, public policy and for those working with underserved Latino populations. Participants will have the opportunity to meet and network with practitioners, researchers and community activists currently impacting the field of public health. Individuals will gain valuable resources and skills towards shaping health policy and creating greater health equity for Latino populations here in the Pacific Northwest region.
