Immigrant Latinos and their families are often excluded from public health programming and research due to language barriers, cultural differences and limited literacy. This may contribute to health disparities in this population. Adapting public health programs and research to promote the inclusion of immigrant Latino participants goes beyond just language considerations. At the conclusion of this workshop participants will be able to:
1) Describe the immigrant Latinx population in Colorado and their health advantages and disadvantages compared with non-immigrant Latinos in Colorado and Coloradans of other races/ethnicities
2) Identify key steps to adaptation and tailoring of public health programs and research to promote inclusion of immigrant Latino populations through small group work on case studies from existing public health programs and research
