“GROWING UP LATINO AND SURVIVING TO 25”:
NPR’S LATINO USA TO HOST PANEL AT UC DAVIS

 

 

 

 

On April 23rd, The Futuro Media Group, in collaboration with the UC Davis Center for Reducing Health Disparities and the UC Davis Cross Cultural Center, will present a panel of renowned experts and speakers, moderated by award-winning journalist and Latino USA executive producer and host Maria Hinojosa, exploring the challenges of growing up Latino/a. Dr. Sergio Aguilar-Gaxiola and Dr. Lina Mendez of the UC Davis Center for Reducing Health Disparities will share key findings from a June 2012 study of the landscape of mental health services for Latinos in California. Dr. Luis Zayas, Dean of the School of Social Work and Centennial Professor in Leadership at The University of Texas at Austin, will share findings from his 25 years of research on Latina suicide and family separation. Three young people: a UC Davis student, an SFSU student, and the Youth Initiatives Coordinator for the Mental Health Association of San Francisco, will speak about their personal experiences coping with (mis)diagnosis, foster care, identity, family, and themselves.  Excerpted recordings from Maria Hinojosa’s exclusive January 2013 interview with Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor for Latino USA will explore how Sotomayor dealt with her father’s death, her mother’s mourning, and became who she is today.

 

The panel will take place at the UC Davis Student Community Center, Second Floor, from 5:30PM-7:30PM PDT. The event will also be accessible to a national audience through live streaming at http://www.futuromediagroup.org/lusa/growing-up-latino-and-surviving-to-25/. A social media crowdsourcing campaign with the hashtag #whatmakesmecrazy will encourage youth across California to contribute through personal videos, photographs, and statements. More information on the campaign is available at http://www.futuromediagroup.org/lusa/you-crazy-media-kit/.
