Abstract: Consistent with the migration history of the United States, immigrants today represent a large and important segment of the population and the nation's health. Latino/Hispanic (herein Latino) individuals represented more than half of the growth of the US population from 2000 to 2010 and are projected to represent 30% of the population by 2060.1 The growth of the Latino population in the United States is a function of both migration and US-born descendants, as nearly 1 in 4 young people enrolled in school today are of Latino origin.2 Although research on the health of Latino communities has not kept pace with this fast-growing population, several key findings have emerged over the past few decades.
