Overview
The annual Latino Health Symposium links all of the Medical Organization for Latino Advancement (MOLA) programs, provides a forum for showcasing our annual outcomes, and creates an academic forum where Latino health issues and Latino physicians, students, and researchers are the focus. MOLA is a non-profit association of Chicagoland Hispanic/Latino physicians working for career advancement, linguistic and cultural competency, personal wellness, and reduced health disparities for the good of the entire Hispanic/Latino community. MOLA will be partnering with Northwestern University's Office of Diversity and Inclusion to provide this educational experience for Northwestern and greater Chicago area physicians, researchers, and health advocates. The event will gather medical experts who can provide an evidence-based discussion of current issues that impact Latino health disparities, public health, health policy, and diversity, inclusion and equity for health professionals and students. The event will consist of lecture-based and small group discussions, as well as poster presentations.

Objectives
  1. Identify how Latino physicians and health professionals can create positive impact to address gaps and barriers in Latino health.
  2. Describe innovative strategies that are being realized in current academic work to improve Latino health and Latino health professional advancement
  3. Create connections with fellow health professionals and students as a step in future collaborative work, mentorship opportunities, and career development.
