Our mission is to further the understanding of equitable primary care delivery and its barriers in Latinos, by quantitatively examining primary care datasets in broad populations. We seek to influence the national conversation on health equity in this population by providing rigorous, peer-reviewed science to inform policy, care reform, care improvement, and better health.
We accomplish our mission by doing the following:
Leveraging public and foundation funding to study the delivery of equitable primary care to Latino populations
Focusing on the use of electronic health record datasets to understand the real-world, multi-region primary care delivered to Latino populations over time, especially those cared for by community health centers in the United States.
Facilitating the development of a robust, ethnically diverse scientific workforce, by providing opportunities for multiple learners to ask and answer research questions in Latino health equity and primary care delivery.
