We are looking to particularly highlight work that addresses the following competencies for our membership and attendees:
- Understand key issues in Hispanic/Latino health and health disparities on a local, regional, or national level.
- Identify evidence-based strategies to address gaps and barriers in Latino health and discuss options for implementation of “best practices” with Latino patients and communities.
- Describe innovative strategies that are being realized or proposed in current academic research, community practice, or educational development that have an impact on improving Latino health equity.
- Discuss strategies in health policy or education that address increased equity and representation of Latinos in medical careers and other areas of health professional advancement.
Abstracts eligible for submission: Original research, case reports/case series, and community projects. Abstracts should not report results that have been previously published.
MOLA encourages the submission of abstracts by presenting authors who are students, medical students, residents, or fellows-in-training. Please check the box on the submission form site to indicate your training status for special award consideration.
Abstract Word Limit: 300 words. Organize abstract content in sections as follows: Background/Purpose, Method, Results (Case description for case reports), and Discussion/Impact.
