CLUES requests funding from the NNLM to support a Health and Wellbeing workshop series for the second program year. The workshops will take place in areas of Minnesota where large communities of Latinos live and work, including southern Minnesota in areas such as St. James and Austin. The workshop curriculum has recently been conceptualized and created by CLUES Behavioral and Community Health staff, and covers topics across well-being, including healthy behaviors healthy eating, active living, tobacco cessation, communication, and dealing with difficult emotions regulation of feelings and its expression, trauma. Additionally, new sessions will be added to respond to the needs of the community we serve in St. James. Each workshop course will connect participants to National Library of Medicine Resources, including MedlinePlus, to provide families with access to resources for increasing their knowledge of health topics long after the workshops. The envisioned Health and Wellbeing workshop series will be especially valuable in increasing access to health information for Latinos in Greater Minnesota, who typically do not have access to culturally and linguistically relevant health or human services.
