North Carolina Latino Health Project (2013-2014)

This project was a collaboration among the Center for Health Policy and Inequalities Research at Duke, El Futuro (a community mental health agency for the Durham and Orange County Latino population) and two Spanish-speaking churches in Durham. Team members worked with mental health providers, clergy and community members to develop an interpersonal violence and trauma educational intervention and delivered the intervention to the Latino population in church settings.
