  • Providing reliable data on Latino ealth
  • Emphasizing the positive contributions of Latinos to the state's economy and society
  • Informing the public about the important emerging Latino medical market

    CESLAC is a resource for community members, business leaders, and policymakers who want insightful research and information about Latinos, their health and culture, and their impact on California's economy and society.  CESLAC offers unparalleled insight into Latino issues through an approach that combines cultural research, demographic trends, and historical perspective.  CESLAC has helped the University of California meet its public service goals by increasing the effectiveness of their outreach to the Latino community.  CESLAC has also provided technical assistance to many non-profit and for-profit organizations.
