Since 1992, CESLAC has provided cutting-edge research, education and public information about Latinos, their health, and their role in California. Under the leadership of Professor David E. Hayes-Bautista, the Center for the Study of Latino Health and Culture at UCLA has been the lead institution in:
  • Exploding myths and stereotypes about Latinos in California Society
  • Providing reliable data on Latino Health
  • Emphasizing the positive contributions of Latinos to the state's economy and society
  • Informing the public about the important emerging Latino medical market

With support from generous sponsors, CESLAC has provided:

  • Data and information to legislators and policymakers at the federal, state, and local levels
  • Technical assistance to hundreds of community organizations and support to dozens of professional associations
  • Briefings and information to newspaper, radio, and television journalists

CESLAC is also a pioneer in medical education:

  • We created the first courses at UCLA in which medical and public health students focus on Latino health
  • We created MEDPEP, a community college program that provides direction and assistance to Latino students planning health careers

CESLAC has been a resource for community members, business leaders, and policy makers who want to gain 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's research-based approach has provided important services to the business community and policymakers. CESLAC has helped the University of California meet its public service goal 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.

CESLAC conducts many surveys, focus groups, and individual interviews annually to keep abreast of trends in Latino target groups. Additionally, our computers are home to hundreds of data sets. Analysis of this data is the basis of CESLAC's ability to provide interested Californians with topical and relevant information on a dynamic and constantly developing community.
