The virtual Jax Saludable Hispanic health conference, led by Mayo Clinic researchers, brought together more than 300 Hispanic leaders from across Jacksonville to discuss a shared vision to improve health care access, processes and outcomes for Hispanics in northeast Florida.

“We have been told multiple times by our community partners that this effort is the first of its kind to address in a comprehensive fashion the health challenges many in our Hispanic community are facing,” says Richard White, M.D., who is leading the development of the conference.
