Latino Family Advisory Board (Consejo de Familias Latinas)
The Latino Family Advisory Board (LFAB) has been very active since its creation four years ago. The board follows a unique model, not only working on research, but also strengthening community-building, and promoting cultural competency among Johns Hopkins staff.
Two manuscripts have been released at the end of 2015, highlighting this program, the model, and the outcomes. We invite you to check them out: First one titled Engagement of Limited English Proficient Latino Families: Lessons Learned from Advisory Board Development published in the Prog Community Health Partnership Journal. Second article Voice and a Vote: The Advisory Board Experiences of Spanish-Speaking Latina Mothers published in the Hisp Health Care Int.
Congratulations to the LFAB members, faculty and staff for these two great outcomes!
¡Felicidades a las miembros del consejo, investigadores y personal por estos dos grandes resultados!
