From the University of New Mexico: Dr. Nina Wallerstein and her team at the University of New Mexico's Center for Participatory Reserach (CBPR) are studying how best to partner with their communities in which they conduct research, in an effort to improve health outcomes in those communities. The CBPR team asks community members themselves to identify which local priorities they think should be studied - diabetes, substuance abuse, obesity and others.
