Title: The Barrio Project
Creators: Duberstein, Genna
Advisor: Del Sarto, Ana
Issue Date: 2007-06
Abstract: This investigation is based on interviews and experience with women from a Columbus community of 2,000 low income Spanish-speaking immigrants, asking them about their daily lives and how they found information about resources in the area. The goal was to gather information that could be useful for outreach organizations to spread awareness about health care for the barrio. This paper proposes that if organizations create interpersonal relationships with the barrio, then they can spread their information, and therefore improve the overall health of the larger community.
