Rural communities are not homogenous, thus engaging diverse audiences in outreach is important to individuals, families and communities. Dr. Greder and colleagues will share key findings and lessons learned from community-based integrated research and health outreach with rural Latinx immigrant families in which they have been involved. Participants and presenters will then brainstorm additional strategies for successfully engaging rural Latinx and other immigrant families in outreach efforts in their communities.
This quarterly webinar series, Relying on Rural Resilience, highlights findings based on 20+ years of research with low-income, rural families across the United States. These results yield powerful information about actions that family outreach professionals can take to promote rural health and resilience. Presenters share key findings from the NC1011/NC1171 HATCH projects that spark facilitated breakout discussion among extension and other family outreach professionals regarding how the findings can impact YOUR work and families in YOUR rural community.
Participants in this webinar will:
Learn about key findings from community-based integrated research and outreach with rural Latinx immigrant families.
Identify additional strategies for successfully engaging rural Latinx and other immigrant families in outreach efforts in their communities.
