On Thursday, January 16th The Connecticut Convergence Institute hosted a Health Café on Cultural Psychiatry and Mental Health Services for the Latinx Community in conjunction with the UConn Latino Medical Student Association. The event attracted over 40 attendees and unlike our traditional Health Café format, this event was interactive, allowing participants the opportunity to break off into small groups to gain a more collaborative approach and strike up a conversation. Dr. Esperanza Diaz, Professor of Psychiatry at Yale University School of Medicine provided the keynote speech and inspired this new configuration.
All Health Café attendees were provided a free dinner and giveaways. We would like to thank the Aetna Foundation for making this event possible.
