Collaborting with partners to serve the Hispanic and Latino communities in Colorado.
We are collaborating with organizations serving the Hispanic and Latino communities in Colorado. These partnerships include Adelante Community Development (CDM), an organization dedicated to promoting economic and educational opportunities to the Latinx community in Colorado, Centro Humanitario, Denver's only day laborer center promoting work, dignity, and community, and the Latino Research and Policy Center (LRPC).
Through our collaborations, we are developing and delivering trainings for this community to improve worker health, safety, and well-being and to empower leadership in practice.
Katherine James, PhD, MSPH, MSCE, is working alongside many community partners in the San Luis Valley in Southern Colorado. In this predominantly Hispanic and Latino community, James and her team are exploring issues related to the impacts of environmental and climate exposure and human health. Each study explores a different sector of this community including pregnant women and children, agricultural workers, and community members using well water.
