Health Research Department

The Health Research Department implements activities and programs from multidisciplinary fields of scientific investigation that study how social factors, health care inequities, and personal behaviors affect the health and well-being of Latino individuals, families, older adults, and the greater community.

Our aim is to use evidence-based research and related activities to help create healthier, stronger individuals and families, and, in turn, a healthier and more well-informed Latino community in the greater Milwaukee area. We collaborate with academic investigators and other partners to conduct community-focused research.
