Our Team

The faculty and research team at Juntos works together to meet the healthcare needs of Latino communities in the state of Kansas.

Comprised of members originally from several Latin American countries as well as the United States, the Juntos team brings a diverse and experience-backed perspective to Latino healthcare.

Team members spend valuable one-on-one time with community leaders and individuals to research and understand their unique needs.
