Latinos in the Heartland: Connecting Research to Policy and Practice, Hoy y Mañana.

"In 2005 the program is stressing efforts that impact policy-making and shape the practices being implemented in communities. To what extent is research affecting policy? What kinds of programs and practices are resulting? What are the policy implications of current and ongoing research efforts?

The presentations in the conference are mostly the result of a Call for Abstracts announced during the fall of 2004. The conference format includes five Plenary Sessions, and four blocks of concurrent breakout sessions addressing research, best practices, workshops and discussion panels on the themes of the conference. Also, there are poster and table display sessions, learning stations, and multiple opportunities for networking."--University of Missouri Extension website (viewed March 9, 2017).
