    illness prevention programs
  • Increased need for a diverse workforce

Foresight
  • The history of the relationship between the U.S.
    government and racial/ethnic minorities plays an
    important role in understanding why health
    disparities exist and how they might be
    eliminated
  • Recognize that undocumented residents will remain
    marginalized under ACA
  • LaViest (2005). Minority Populations
    Health, pg. 1

Perform now
  • Lets not get ahead by going back
  • We dont have to reinvent the wheel

    organize, refocus, prioritize, strategize, and
    implement known EBI and best practices

Q2 What does the ACA mean in relation to how we
plan and practice public health to reduce Latino
health disparities?

Planning
