Center for Advancing Latino Health

The JUNTOS Mission

The main goal is to develop a comprehensive sustainable program at University Kansas Medical Center, fully integrated with the Latino community in Kansas that will both improve the health of the community and advance the field of health services research.

Community Engagement

Who We Serve

JUNTOS is committed to advancing Latino health in rural and urban areas across the state of Kansas through community based participatory research and service. To this end, JUNTOS works in collaboration with community health organizations, faith-based organizations, health care agencies, educational institutions and policymakers. These collaborations are focused on areas in Kansas with the highest concentration of under-served, uninsured Latino families.
