Implementing the health for all model with the Latino community of Kansas City


This is a current project.


Description

Due to longstanding health disparities in multiple minority populations, innovative strategies and models that change community conditions and promote health equity are urgently needed. The aim of this proposal is to implement the culturally and contextually adapted Health for All model. Using community-based participator research methods, the project will assure that community members are equal and essential partners in developing, implementing and evaluating interventions focused on reducing health disparities. This study will expand the science and practice of how communities create conditions that promote health and healthy equity.
