La Nueva California
Latinos in the Golden State

University of California Press, 2004

"Hayes-Bautista has long argued that Latinos in the United States, generally, and Mexican Americans, specifically, are members of a civil society... and not some dysfunctional minority group, as commonly imagined. As Americans lately have discovered America within the Americas, Hayes-Bautista now gives us an excellent guide to the nation's future, by describing the new possibility of California---the largest Hispanic state in the union."

Healing Latinos:
Realidad y Fantasia

Cedars-Sinai Health System, 1999

The 30 million Latinos in the United States will generate an estimated 100-150 million doctor visits in the coming year. Latino patients bring a unique view of health and illness to the examination room. Healing Latinos: Realidad y Fantasia was written by physicians and providers to share their stories about culturally effective healing with their colleagues.

Seventeen collaborators---practitioners, researchers, authors, activists, members of professional organizations, all based in Southern California---define and illustrate effective culturally competent treatment of Latino patients. Their practices include everything from pediatrics to geriatrics, from oncology to psychology, but they all share a common trait: the majority of their patients are Latino. They bring a lifetime of experience with this rich, ancient and varied culture.

Directory of Latino/Hispanic Physicians

Center for the Study of Latino Health and Culture

More than just a list of names, The Directory of Latino/Hispanic Physicians gathers together a cohort of men and women unified by their cultural heritage and motivated by one goal: to improve the health of their community and the individuals in it. Many of these physicians have traveled far to reach this land of freedom and opportunity. They bring with them the richness of their homelands, a strong work ethic, and a pride beyond imagination. All of them have made great sacrifices to attain the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to carry out their chosen profession...
