The 10th annual Familias en Acción Latino Health Equity Conference provides a forum for individuals, community organizations, health professionals and health systems to address health equity through discussion of policies, services, research, and education. This interactive annual conference serves an important role in bridging the gap between health research and health practices by working with Latinos to address health equity issues. It is also an opportunity for Latino advocates to obtain new information and new tools to help advance health equity issues at the local, regional, and national level.

Latino Health Equity Conference 2019 theme, The Power of Nutrition: Seeding Latino Food Equity:
Science tells us that eating healthy foods can reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases and cancer, yet many Latinos struggle to access those foods. This conference will explore topics that address food equity for Latinos, with specific emphasis on how colonization has and continues to have impact on food choice, availability, and cultural identity. By hearing from experts and practitioners in the field, we will leave inspired, informed, and prepared to affect policy, programs, and initiatives that aim to improve Latino health.
