Education & Research

MOLA Education & Research

The Education & Research Program develops strategies to support our members’ career development through education and research. We are interested in addressing the health disparities that Latino community experience with a local, regional, national and international reach. The main venues to develop our activities are:

Latino Health Symposium 2017: REDUCING CANCER CARE DISPARITIES IN LATINOS

With over 200 attendees, 30 academic poster presentations, 5 expert speakers on Latino cancer care disparities, and a brand new mentorship program inauguration with over 60 mentees, we are proud to say that the event was a great success!

The engagement and enthusiasm of the entire crowd was palpable and demonstrates the need and opportunity that this organization is addressing within many aspects of the local Latino community–from pipeline educational needs, academic professional support, and grass-roots activism to make both individual-patient and large-scale community impact.
