Bringing in the New Year!!

Posted on

 

It is hard to believe 2017 is already here! At JUNTOS, we were anxiously waiting for this year to come not only because of our excitement to continue working with our current partners and creating new ones, but because it also signifies a time for growth.

We are all very thrilled to announce that after all the hard work and long working hours of our smoking cessation team, we were granted a 5-year R01 grant for a Mobile Cessation Support Program for Latino Smokers!!

Our project focuses on examining the efficacy of the of an innovative 12-week mobile cessation intervention that incorporates a tablet-based e-health educational session that will collect personal smoking-related information to develop an individualized quit plan. Additionally, the project will offer a text messaging program that includes educational information, behavioral strategies, motivational and supportive messaging, and pharmacotherapy at no additional cost.

We are very overwhelmed with joy although we realize this grant will imply a lot of hard work and dedication. However, we are ready for the challenge. In the past two years, we have been working in the development, refinement, and execution of two national and one binational smoking cessation text-message programs (more easily said than done). Our positive results and the gratitude of our participants gives us the confidence that this grant will be no different.

So here’s to another successful and engaging year!

 

Best regards,

 

The JUNTOS team

Visita del Hospital del Niño Morelense

Posted on

El día miércolIMG_2962es tuvimos la oportunidad de recibir a la Dra. Rebeca Borgaro y Dra. Leticia Corina Martínez del Hospital del Niño Morelense con los cuales pudimos compartir algún tiempo y platicar alguno de los proyectos que llevamos a cabo en Juntos con la comunidad Latina, por ejemplo la Ventanilla de Salud pediátrica en la cual realizamos una encuesta basada en la encuesta nacional en la que preguntamos cosas básicas del aspecto de salud como si hay algún lugar donde reciba atención primaria de salud, cuidado dental, seguro médico, vacunación e IMC. Así como conocer algunos de los proyectos que se están llevando en México y sobre todo dentro del Hospital del Niño Morelense.

Estamos emocionado de haber podido compartir esta experiencia con ellos y formar lazos de amistad para poder llevar a cabo  proyectos junto a ellos.

On Wednesday we had the chance to receive Dr . Rebecca Borgaro and Dra . Leticia Corina Martinez from the Hospital del Niño Morelense with whom we could share some time and discuss some of the projects we undertake in Juntos with the Latino community, like the Ventanilla de Salud Pediatrica at which conducted a survey based on national survey that asked basic things like health aspect, primary health care , dental care , medical insurance, vaccination and BMI . And know some of the projects that are taking in Mexico and especially in the Hospitla del Niño Morelense.

We are excited to be able to share this experience with them and form friendships to carry out projects with them.
