This project focuses on key health priorities couched in the framework of social determinants of health that contribute to health disparities in Arizona communities. Outreach activities will connect with the following partners: healthcare providers and 131s embedded in underserved communities; promotoras de salud community health workers; 12s and school associates; Hispanic, Spanish-speaking, and border-region populations; Native American and tribal communities; public librarians; and health agency and community health organization collaborators. Although programs will target specific populations, community members throughout Arizona will be encouraged to participate in activities.
