GW Avance Center to Host Annual Latino Health Disparities Conference

Registration is now open for The Avance Center for the Advancement of Immigrant/Refugee Health’s Regional Conference on Advancing Health Equity for Latino Youth & Families on October 5, 2016. The conference offers an opportunity for researchers, practitioners, and advocates to share emerging research, best practices, and community perspectives that shape the agenda for promoting Latino health and eliminating disparities. This year will focus on migration trends throughout the region, how migration impacts the health of Latino youth and families, and how communities have responded. Topics include family reunification, housing, education, behavioral health, and policy.

The Avance Center has partnered with the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments and the Regional Primary Care Coalition. The center is housed at Milken Institute School of Public Health at the George Washington University. View the draft agenda and register to attend.
