Welcome / Bienvenidos!

On behalf of all our collaborating partners, welcome/bienvenidos to the Avance Center for the Advancement of Immigrant/Refugee Health, funded by the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities. We look forward to this opportunity to engage in a range of research, intervention and capacity building activities that we hope will contribute to the resolution of health disparities in the Latino community.

This site serves as a platform for sharing our progress towards these goals, and for disseminating useful and practical information that communities and researchers can use. Please visit us often — we will be expanding the site with dynamic and interactive features as we go!

Mark_Edberg !Que le vaya bien!
