Keep Oregon Well and Trillium Family Services recently sponsored the 2018 Latino Health Equity Conference presented by Familias en Acción. Along with the sponsorship Keep Oregon Well also hosted a resource table and prize wheel which was a big hit with the enthusiastic crowd.

The 2018 Conference focused on strengthening Latino mental and emotional health through understanding and integrating Latino psychology within our health, mental health, and social service systems.  The keynote speaker, Dr. Yvette Flores, explored the innovative approaches to providing culturally specific research and practice-based support for mental and emotional health within the context of being Latino.  Latino identity is broad and complex and there is no universal approach to serving Latino communities.

The conference was a huge success and it was very well attended, we look forward to participating next year.
