For over 40 years, the Ponce Research Institute (PRI), in collaboration with the Ponce Health Sciences University (PHSU), has a longstanding commitment towards conducting research that addresses Hispanic health disparities to improve the lives of the communities we serve.
This year PRI is partnering with the PHSU Specialized Center in Health Disparities (also known as the RCMI Program, Grant U54MD007579) to have the 17th PHSU-PRI Annual Scientific Conference and the 1st RCMI Health Disparities Symposium all together on May 7, 2022, at the Hilton Ponce Golf & Casino Resort.

We will also host scientific plenaries and panel discussions in areas such as diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity, hypertension, and cardiovascular diseases.
