Behavioral Underpinnings and Social Interaction on Hispanic Health

The conference, co-organized by Drs. Jacqueline Angel, Keith Whitfield, Kyriakos Markides, and Fernando Torres-Gil, emphasized the intersection of biological, behavioral, and social issues to the older Mexican population. The conference was held on September 15-17, 2009 at the University of Texas at Austin campus.
