OCHLA hosts statewide health summit

The Ohio Commission on Hispanic/Latino Affairs (OCHLA) hosts the first statewide Ohio Latino Health Summit on Friday, August 3rd, 2012, at the Ohio Department of Job & Family Services Air Center facility in Columbus.

In partnership with LULAC Ohio, the Ohio Latino Health Coalition, the Ohio Latino Mental Health Network, and the Ohio Departments of Health and Job & Family Services, the Summit brings Latino constituents together with health experts, service providers, and academics to discuss health concerns impacting Latino Ohioans.

Through a series of interactive workshop sessions, state officials, experts and community leaders

discuss and share the latest research and best-practice models. “The Summit is our collaborative effort to inform the public about the health disparities affecting Latino Ohioans, while providing health leaders with research and organizational resources to develop more effective and efficient health services for these communities.

“We hope that by bringing these discussions to the forefront, we can encourage culturally-competent outreach initiatives from government agencies and community organizations, and empower Latinos to access those services and maintain control over their health,” declared Maritza Motino, Vice President of LULAC Columbus.

The Summit features welcoming remarks from Ms. Angela Dawson, Director of the Ohio Commission on Minority Health, and a report by Ms. Lydia Alejandro, Co-Founder of the Ohio Latino Health Coalition, who will present the findings of “Local Conversations on Minority Health– Report to the Community 2011,” an effort spearheaded by the Ohio Commission on Minority Health, the Office of Minority Health and the National Partnership for Action to End Health Disparities (NPA).

This report will be part of a national plan that provides a common set of goals for eliminating health disparities through cooperative and strategic actions of stakeholders around the country.


The Ohio Latino Health Summit is free to attend, and registration is available at:
