The Culture & Health interdisciplinary Community of Practice will address specific public health issues and how they relate to features of culture that influence health status and outcomes. We are a research-based community that creates and shares collaborative knowledge and tools, such as assessments and interventions. Our group facilitates dialogue and connection building and potentiates research collaborations to engage community stakeholders, create new data, and develop group publications and proposals.


The Culture and Health among Hispanics Community of Practice will bring together an interdisciplinary body of researchers and practitioners with the vision of disseminating resources and materials, influencing practice, providing training and outreach opportunities, and generating sustainable funding through collaborative research projects.
