"Who's Community is this Anyway - Community Mobilization or Community Manipulation?"

In addition to presenting innovative approaches to "mobilizing" Latino communities around major relevant health topics, the panel (with representatives from the private and public sectors) will openly and candidly discuss the realities of how and why priorities are identified and set for health programming in Latino communities that too often have little or no bearing on what the community needs or wants. Significant, meaningful, and sustainable reductions in health disparities can only be achieved in the context of what the community needs and wants. How to determine and respond to these needs and wishes, considering funding and political realities, are challenges that must be addressed
