The Latino Network Core will build on the landmark Hispanic Community Health Survey/Study of Latinos (HCHS/SOL), a community-based cohort of 16,415 adults from four cities with large Latino communities — Bronx, NY, Miami, FL, San Diego, CA and Chicago, IL.

 

AIMS

The overall goal is to support translational research that focuses on cutting-edge diabetes prevention and control with emphasis on sociocultural adaption for Latinos in U.S. The leadership and core faculty will provide expertise in Latino biopsychosocial research and collaborate with members of the HCHS/SOL investigative team, and other investigators interested in diabetes-related research in Latinos.

SERVICES PROVIDED

  1. Provide consultation that supports developing diabetes translation research within the HCHS/SOL Cohort and within other existing or newly recruited Latino cohorts.
  2. Serve as a national resource bank for validated psychological, behavioral and socio-cultural assessment instruments for use with Latino populations living with and at risk for diabetes.
