Dr. David E. Hayes-Bautista, director of the Center for the Study of Latino Health and Culture at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine and one of the nation’s foremost experts on Hispanic epidemiology, will speak about Latinx health and the mystery behind Latinx epidemiological outcomes.
“Hayes-Bautista will discuss what has become known as the ‘Latino health paradox’: the unexpected fact that Latinxs live longer and enjoy better outcomes in mental health and other areas than most of their fellow Americans—this despite the fact that they suffer from elevated rates of poverty, wage theft, and discrimination,” said A.K. Sandoval-Strausz, director of the Latina/o Studies Program at Penn State. “The keynote will be held via Zoom, allowing people from all the Commonwealth Campuses and across Pennsylvania to attend.”
Hayes-Bautista will also take questions from the audience.
