Ohio Latino Health Summit features Dr. Antonia Novello, July 28


The Ohio Latino Affairs Commission [OCHLA] will host its sixth annual Latino Health Summit at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine on Friday, July 28th, 2017, from 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. The theme of this year’s summit is “Integrate – Educate – Empower,” and will focus on sharing best practices that seek to improve the quality of health care services for Latino/Hispanic Ohioans.


Health experts, service providers, public officials and community leaders will convene to share best practices, discuss health policy, and address issues on topics relevant to the Latino community.

From presentations on navigating the healthcare system and developing a culturally competent workforce, to addressing the opioid epidemic and minimalizing barriers to behavioral and mental health, the agenda will bring relevance and practical application for all attendees.


The Summit features Dr. Antonia Novello, a Puerto Rican physician who has spent most of her career as a public health administrator and is the first woman to serve as U.S. Surgeon General.


Hispanics are the fastest growing demographic in Ohio comprising more than 411,000 and accounting for 3.5% of the state’s population. The Ohio Latino Summit is organized in partnership with the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), Mercy Health, Closing the Health Gap, and the Ohio Commission on Minority Health.


“Latino serving and grassroots organizations play an important role in educating and bringing access to health care services for the growing community; hence the importance to create spaces where these leaders, experts and government officials can work together to integrate Latinos to mainstream society, help them understand the system thus resulting in empowered and engaged citizens,” summarized Lilly Cavanaugh, Executive Director of OCHLA.


The event is free and open to the public. To register for the summit, visit:
