    Taking a Closer Look at Latino Pan-ethnic Identity
    A blog published by Dr. Gabriel Sanchez, on the Latino Decisions blog site on April 18, 2012. The blog highlights a recent report released by the Pew Hispanic Center indicating that the pan-ethnic terms of Latino and Hispanic do not resonate well with the population that they are intended to define. More specifically, a majority (51%) say that they most often identify themselves by their family's country of origin (Mexican/Mexican American for example) compare to just 24% who prefer a pan-ethnic label. These numbers are helpful in determining the extent to which a pan-ethnic identity exists within the Latino/Hispanic population, but do not provide a comprehensive depiction of the complexitities associated with Latino identity.

    Latinos tend to have significantly lower levels of access to general and topquality medical care than do non-Latino whites, and although disparities in access to health care have diminished for all other minority groups over time, they have widened for Latinos. Given these trends the current attempts to provide universal health care at both the national and state levels across the United States have large implications to the health status of Latinos. The objective of this analysis is to determine whether Latinos have different attitudes regarding health reform than non-Latino whites.

    Health care reform is a salient policy issue nationally and at the state level and in New Mexico this is no exception.
