Disclosure statement:

Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: As a family practitioner, I have come to understand the culture-specific beliefs that serve as barriers to quality chronic disease health care. I have designed and managed service oriented and research programs involving CVD and diabetes prevention and control, breast and cervical cancer early detection/screening. Most of these projects have focused on low-income, low-literacy Spanish-speaking Latinos. Many of these projects have been conducted in collaboration with SYHC following principles of community-based participatory research.
Any relevant financial relationships? No

I agree to comply with the American Public Health Association Conflict of Interest and Commercial Support Guidelines, and to disclose to the participants any off-label or experimental uses of a commercial product or service discussed in my presentation.
