Conference Health Track: In the age of globalization, more than ever, complexity defines health. Differences in economic circumstances, education, behavioral choices, living conditions and the physical environment can prevent newcomers in the Midwest from being as healthy as the general population, creating additional social and health inequalities. The following topics are very relevant to the conference: networking and community-based health care programs; cultural gaps and bridging; consequences of acculturation and health behavior modification; influence of race or ethnicity on doctor-patient relationship; cultural competence; traditional practices; health literacy; outreach to families with children with disabilities; domestic and sexual violence, among other topics.

The Cambio de Colores conference is a multistate conference about integration of immigrants in new destinations in the Midwest. It is a professional development opportunity that engages practitioners, researchers, and those working with immigrant communities in sharing experiences and knowledge that facilitate the integration of immigrants in new settlement areas.

The 16th annual conference will take place in St. Louis on June 14, 15 and 16th, 2017. The theme this year is “Todos Juntos: Collaboration and Unity in Uncertain Times.

The following themes provide the conference framework:
1. Change and Integration
