Using the National Latino and Asian Americans Study (NLAAS) data, we have submitted abstracts to Association of Public Health Administration (APHA) for Annual APHA conference in Colorado, November 2010: 1. The effects of discrimination and acculturation to service seeking satisfaction for Latina and Asian American women: Implications for mental health professions. 2.
