Annotation

Julie Lucero, PhD, MPH, presented on the collection of Race/Ethnicity and Language (REL) data. Collection of this data is important to tracking progress of health disparities across populations. Health disparities impact individual and family well-being throughout the United States by compounding and intersecting with traumatic life conditions such as the chronic strain of poverty and marginalization. The presentation included a brief history of health disparities and race/ethnicity categories; a description of why REL data are collected; and how to ask the questions. Facilitator: Trish Thomas, Family Voices; Speaker: Julie Lucero, PhD, MPH, Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the University of New Mexico (UNM) Health Sciences Center and the Associate Director of the Center for Participatory Research, and a senior fellow with the New Mexico Center for the Advancement of Research Engagement and Science on Health Disparities Center (NM CARES), a National Institute for Minority Health and Health Disparities funded center
