Health Services and Latino Youth: Challenges, Collaborations, and the Social Safety Net


March 19, 2018


The Fourth Annual Latino Public Affairs Forum (ALPAF) convened American University faculty and distinguished national experts from the legal and medical fields, together with local government and community representatives, to address access to health services for often undocumented, underserved, and at-risk Latino youth. It featured a keynote speaker and three moderated panels, addressing the federal landscape, ongoing challenges and solutions for local jurisdictions, the emerging inter-professional and community collaborations working to provide these services, and some of the most innovative school-based models for service delivery. The event was featured in several media outlets, including the Kojo Nnamdi Show.

Co-sponsors for this event included the American University Center on Health, Risk and Society and AU Washington College of Law's Health Law and Policy Program.
