Programs / Hispanic Health Issues 


Hispanics suffer disproportionately from a number of health issues. HACU's educational outreach addresses these critical issues from several directions.

  • From 1999 through 2010, the DHHS-HACU Professions Capacity Building program offered grant-training opportunity, including a hands-on session at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD, for faculty and staff in health sciences and offices of sponsored research at member institutions.
  • HACU's Government Relations Office monitors legislation that addresses Hispanic health disparities.
