The Latino/a population is in a state of rapid growth in this country. There are particular diseases and conditions that have historically affected this population with greater frequency than other populations. In addition, as the Latino/a population continues to expand in the American culture, new health concerns not typically related to this population will emerge. Education on these issues is essential to understand how they may alter or impact the Latino/a community.
