The Art of Healing Latinos collects the wisdom of health professionals who have particular expertise in treating Latino patients. Their knowledge comes from many years of service in fields that range from pediatrics to geriatrics, oncology to psychology. Uniquely qualified to bridge the gap between the world of American medicine and the traditions of Latino culture, these physicians, researchers, administrators, and activists offer insight and advice to all who provide, or aspire to provide, health services to the Latino community.

David E. Hayes-Bautista is professor of medicine and director of the Center for the Study of Latino Health and Culture in the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

Roberto Chiprut was an internist and gastroenterologist at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and associate clinical professor in the UCLA Department of Medicine.
