Committed to understanding the challenges that Latino families face in obtaining health care

The Latino Youth Health Study was developed to understand the experiences of Latino families with children in California as they seek health care and engage in their communities.

Conducted by the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, in collaboration with Drexel University and UC Merced, the study aims to learn more about how Latino children’s family composition, their parent’s engagement with providers, and their parent’s perception about immigration influences their children’s access to health care.
