We seek to improve the health of our community by developing, implementing, and assessing socio-culturally and linguistically appropriate interventions. Our research has led to:
An effective, sustainable, community-owned tuberculosis prevention and control program in socially marginalized groups
Attenuation of the risk of cardiovascular disease among immigrants and refugee families in Minnesota who are living in poverty through community-led work
Digital storytelling by immigrants and refugees to inform other patients of their experience of trying to manage chronic diseases such as diabetes
Reduction of cancer screening disparities among people with limited English proficiency.
Co-creation of a childhood obesity prevention program among at-risk youth in after-school programs
