Latinas Construyendo Liderazgo


The 3rd Latina Leadership Institute will bring together women from all five boroughs of New York City in order to deliver prevention messages about commonly sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, as well as address issues of disparities in access to health care. Specifically, topics covered during the institute will include: HPV, HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Hepatitis A, B and C, Breast and Cervical Cancer and navigating the healthcare system.


The institute will engage women in these issues through workgroups where experts will present information and participants will analyze and discuss case studies. Taking into account the needs of women, the institute will include childcare services, breakfast and lunch. Women who participate will be entered to win giveaways and all women will take home a gift bag which will include incentives, information and a resource guide.
