Date: Wednesday, September 7

As a Cuban American psychologist, Dr. Jimenez will provide unique personal and professional insights on the differing needs of older Latinos by exploring psychiatric comorbidity, experiences with seeking, accessing, and engaging in treatment, and the unique cultural and psychosocial factors that affect treatment outcomes. Tangible tools for developing and implementing culturally-sensitive, mental health focused interventions for older Latinos will be discussed with special attention placed on cultural adaptations and practical strategies that can be implemented to increase engagement and participation in mental healthcare.
