This fourth annual forum will convene AU faculty, and distinguished national experts from the legal and medical fields, together with local government and community representatives, to address the critical issue of access to health services for often undocumented, underserved, and at-risk Latino youth.

It will feature a key note 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. Co-sponsors for this event include AU’s Center for Latin American & Latino Studies, its Center for Health, Risk and Society, and the Washington College of Law’s Health Law and Policy Program
