Centro SOL Faculty and staff engage in a wide variety of research projects to build the evidence base for improving Latino health. These research projects cover myriad topic areas, including mental health, cardiovascular health, and sexual health, among others. In addition to developing and implementing our own research, Centro SOL also partners with researchers from other departments within Johns Hopkins and from other universities.
Centro SOL Policy Group works to create a partnership between leaders in healthcare administration, public health, and health policy with providers working with the Latino community in order to identify challenges that impact Latino health and make health policy recommendations to improve health equity for Latinos at the local, state, and national level.
