Programs / Hispanic Health Issues 


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

  • With support from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), HACU is offering the National Hispanic Health Research Training Program, a series of workshops designed to inspire and prepare Hispanic undergraduates to pursue health research careers. For more information about the next workshop, click here.
  • 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.
