Latinos account for more than 11% of Connecticut’s population – making them the state’s largest ethnic minority.   But as a group, they are also the states poorest, sickest and least educated residents - and they account for 40% of the states uninsured.  Today at 4:30 at UCONN School of Social Work, a Latino Health Summit will address come of these concerns.  Joining us to talk about the health of our latino population is Jeanette DeJesus, Executive Director of The Hispanic Health Council.
