NIH: Nuestro Futuro Saludable: The JP Partnership for Healthy Caribbean Latino Youth

This project is significant because. (1) it is a within-group intervention research project targeting a not well understood sub-population of the Latino demographic; (2) the project is unique because it brings together a diverse group of community stakeholders: (3) key personnel are primarily people of color, with a majority of bilingual Latina women of varying backgrounds; and (4) the project introduces two new investigators of color.
