Latino Initiative 1998-2012

LIHealthLeaders.w-studentsThe Latino Initiative has been a unique program in our state and nation for more than a decade.

When asked, “What would you tell a friend or colleague about the Latino Initiative program?” one traveler responded, “Go!  You will be tired, you will cry, you will laugh but most of all – you will be changed.”

The experiences gained as a program participant have given these individuals a deeper understanding of immigration issues. As a result, they have had the opportunity to influence local approaches to integrating Latinos into their communities. In bringing back knowledge and experiences to North Carolina, they have helped prepare their professions and our state succeed.

What participants learn, and more importantly share with others, is making a difference. The far-reaching impact of the Latino Initiative truly fosters understanding in our communities. Bravo and keep up the good work!
