The Latino Health Summit 2012 took place on June 7-8th at the Rollins School of Public Health from Emory University. The Summit was possible thanks to the generous donation of the Healthcare Georgia Foundation and Co-hosted by the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University.
The Objectives of the event were:
1. To serve as a platform for the release of Report "Status of Latino Health in Georgia" in partnership with the Rollins School for Public Health from Emory University.
2. To Discuss and develop an action plan to address disparities and issues in four Health Priority Areas as recommended by Research Team and Planning Committee: Maternal Child Health, Cancer, Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetes & Obesity and Behavioral Health.
With over 150 attendees, 27 speakers and panelists and over 30 volunteers working both days, the Latino Health Summit was one-of-a-kind event that brought together health providers, legislators, government officials, non-profit representatives and for-profit representatives.
