2022 Latino/a/x Special Interest Group Symposium: Exploring “Equity” in Healthcare Access and Delivery Among Latinos/x: Are We There Yet?

Thursday April 7th, 10:45 AM – 12 PM

Purpose: The aim of this symposium is to highlight persistent challenges to health equity among Latinos/x in the United States (US) and abroad via four recent projects/studies by nurse researchers. In this symposium, we consider current barriers to true equity across this heterogenous, and resilient group and present compelling data that seeks to answer the question “are we there yet?” in terms of achieving health equity in the US and throughout the Latin American diaspora.
