As an immigrant himself, Dr. Jose William Castellanos has a particular passion for working with immigrant Latino communities.
"People with professional backgrounds usually leave this area, but I find that I'd prefer to give back," he said, explaining his motivation in the Twin Cities Daily Planet.
The Community Research Institute has worked with Castellanos to further his dedication to the Latino community by providing training, tools, and technical assistance to develop his research. With this partnership, Castellanos works towards lessening the gap between the health status of the U.S. population and the health status of immigrants.
We are proud of Dr. Castellanos' work, read more about it in the Twin Cities Daily Planet article.
