Abstract. This public webinar will provide an overview of health disparities experienced by the Portuguese-speaking communities in the United States, namely in Massachusetts. In addition, it will explore health-disparities terminology and concepts, describe social issues that impact the health and well-being of Portuguese-speaking communities, and discuss specific public health considerations pertinent to the current coronavirus health crisis. The webinar has broad relevance to clinicians, public health practitioners, community advocates, policy makers, administrators, researchers and academics, as well as the interested public.

Bio. Prior to obtaining his Doctor of Public Health degree from the School of Public Health at Texas A&M University, Dr. Pavão earned a Master’s of Public Administration from Bridgewater State University and a Bachelor’s degree from Brandeis University. In the early 1990s, Dr. Pavão started his public health career in Fall River, Massachusetts, as a community organizer in HIV prevention, and operated several tobacco-control and substance-use community coalitions. Throughout his career, he has focused on the nexus between dissemination of research and innovative public health programming, specifically for linguistic minority populations. In 2007, he was selected to serve a four-year appointment on the Council of Public Representatives (COPR) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Dr. Pavão has also served on the Refugee and Immigrant Health Advisory Committee (RIHAC) at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. More recently, he has collaborated and evaluated public health programs with marginalized populations in Houston, Atlanta, and Nashville. Dr. Pavão is presently conducting a national study on Brazilian immigrants and working on a book exploring health disparities of Portuguese-speaking communities.
