The Latino Caucus (Est. 1973) represents the unique perspectives and special public health problems common to Spanish-speaking individuals in the United States. The Caucus provides an entry-point for young bilingual professionals. It also provides programs that explore the special issues of migrant workers, illegal immigrants, legal immigrants and those individuals who lack access to Western medical systems and rely on traditional indigenous systems of care. The Caucus has also worked closely with Sections to explore issues of environmental hazards to the labor force and sweat shops that pose serious threats to maternal and child health.
