Goals/Desired Outcomes:

The goal of this session is to inform participants about the health status and health behaviors of California Latinos in order to enable them to develop effective research for reducing health disparities among the Latino population. The demographic and contextual characteristics that are essential to understanding the health disparities in Latinos will be highlighted.



By the end of this talk, participants will be able to:

  1. Gain an understanding of health disparities in California Latinos.

  2. Recognize changes in the fertility rates of Latinos that have occurred over the last several decades.

  3. Learn sources of data that can be accessed to learn about the heath status of Latinos in the state of California.
