The Southern CT State University-MultiCultural Health Leaders: Educating older 88 on improving their health through health literacy and Salsa and Cha-Cha'ing their way to decreasing the risk of dementia

The Southern CT State University- MultiCultural Health Leaders MCHL, an established university student organization composed of public health and nursing students, requests $10,000 from the National Libraries of Medicine- New England Regions NLM-NER to advance health information resources in community/church centers throughout New Haven and Fairfield Counties. The primary goal of this project is to advance health information resources in Minority 88 and encourage the use of reliable NML databases when searching for health information. We will also provide an activity recommended by experts to maintain physical and mental well-being. This will be in the form of learning new dances such as salsa and the cha-cha.
