Through our ground-breaking summits, we have successfully elevated the most pressing issues of the Latino community across Pennsylvania by bringing together influential thought leaders, private and public-sector organizations, and members of the community to grow together in a collaborative and uplifting environment. Topics are carefully selected to shine a spotlight on both challenges and successes in Latino health including community-based approaches to health and wellness.

The Summit will bring together executives and professionals in areas of healthcare, social services, and public health for engaging professional workshops that share fresh perspectives informed by real-world experience in local communities.

Both the inaugural and the 2nd Annual Summits were successes in their own right. The Inaugural 2018 Summit saw over 400 people attending both the Summit and the Expo. The 2nd Annual Summit had 1,200 attendees over two days. For two years in a row, we have successfully shined a light on an issue that affects over 1,000,000 Pennsylvanians with the help of healthcare companies, community organizations, the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Commission on Latino Affairs.
