In the interest of providing greater access to culturally competent and linguistically relevant health services to Minnesotas Latino communities, CLUES requests funding from the NNLM to support the development, planning, and execution of our Health and Wellbeing workshop series. The workshops will take place in areas of Minnesota where large communities of Latinos live and work, including 95 southern Minnesota in areas such as Worthington, Mankato, Willmar, and Austin. Workshop curriculum will be conceptualized and created by CLUES Behavioral and Community Health staff, and will cover topics across wellbeing, including healthy behaviors healthy eating, active living, tobacco cessation, communication, and dealing with difficult emotions regulation of feelings and its expression, trauma. Each workshop course will connect participants to National Library of Medicine Resources, including MedlinePlus. 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.
