On December 11, 2002, the University of California, San Francisco, Fresno (UCSF Fresno) Latino Center for Medical Education and Research will host a lecture titled Latino Health in California—Challenges and Opportunities by David Hayes-Bautista, PhD, founder and director of the Center for the Study of Latino Health and Culture at the University of California, Los Angeles, School of Medicine.  His major research areas include Latino demographics, health policy, culture, identity and behavior, and culturally effective health care delivery.

 

During the lecture, Hayes-Bautista will discuss the Latino health paradox in California.

In addition, Hayes-Bautista will address the shortage of Latinos entering the health care professions in California.
