Research and Intervention: Lessons from Chicago, Hartford and Mumbai

This presentation will focus on the engagement and participation of urban community residents in research, and the translation of research results into health intervention programs and community development. Drawing on examples from the Mexican community in Chicago, the Puerto Rican and African American communities in Hartford and a predominately Muslim, low income community of 600,000 people in Mumbai, entry into the community, mutual learning and training, data collection methodology, community dissemination and development and evaluation of culturally appropriate interventions will be discussed.
