Center for Latino Community Health
The CSULB Center for Latino Community Health, Evaluation, and Leadership Training was established in 2005 to support and create diverse community health initiatives that increase access to culturally and linguistically relevant health education, prevention, screening, and treatment. Our mission is to improve, promote, and advocate for the health and well-being of diverse Latino/Hispanic communities. Grants funded through a myriad of governmental agencies and gifts from private donors support our efforts. Our programs capacitate communities by training undergraduate and graduate students to work closely with leading multi-disciplinary academics to positively create culturally relevant strategies that improve the health access of Latinos in the United States. We strive to ensure that each of our programs has a sustainable and tangible outcome in the community and that our work promotes positive change in Latino health status and access.
