In 2023, we will be in the communities of Northern San Diego County to gather information that will inform culturally appropriate strategies to promote health. An advisory board of community leaders, members, and health professionals will help guide and monitor the project. The information gathered and partnerships built through PIC Health will lay the foundation for future approaches in community-based participatory research that aim to decrease health disparities in the Pacific Islander and Latino community. In addition, we aim to enhance the research capacity of students underrepresented in biomedical research. Currently, we are seeking partnerships within the Pacific Islander and Latino communities and undergraduate interns.
