Hinojosa on Minority Health

In looking at avenues to support minority health initiatives, particularly in the Hispanic community, it is essential to develop relationships with trusted leaders within the community. Organizations, religious institutions, local businesses, and community health centers are where advocates with real community touch points can be found. These leaders will be central to sharing safe, reliable information with their friends, neighbors and clients.

Ko Chin on Minority Health

When we think about improving minority health, we rarely think of clinical trials and research. But we should. To move closer to health equity, we must increase the participation of diverse communities in clinical trials.

Clinical trials are essential in determining whether a drug is ready for mass consumption, as well as revealing important information for doctors and patients about prevention, diagnostic and treatment methods. They can also help shed light on whether there are unique bio-markers across the different groups the product is being provided to.

Cruz on minority health

As the ancient Roman poet Virgil wisely observed, “The greatest wealth is health.” However, health is an issue that usually is approached reactively—not proactively— by Hispanic older adults because they simply face too many competing basic needs. This presents a challenge when it comes to health promotion among Latino seniors. Telling them to “eat healthy” or “do more exercise” is meaningless when food insecurity, hunger, chronic disease and transportation are top of mind.
