The Hispanic Community Group of Tennessee (HCGT) has been collaborating with Tennessee State University-Center for Health Research on a project to assess and improve the Nashville Hispanic community’s readiness to participate in community-based, collaborative initiatives in the area of Hispanic health. The first part of the project involved conducting a Community Readiness Assessment. Sixteen organizations and 32 members of the Hispanic community have responded to the assessment questionnaire.
The second part of the project is a series of capacity-building workshops. The Nashville Latino Health Coalition is also participating as a co-organizer of the workshop series. The first workshop for Hispanic community members was held on Saturday, Oct 28 (“Construyamos Puentes para la Salud: Bridges to Care” / “Let’s Build Bridges for Health: Bridges to Care”).
The second workshop will be held on November 16, in which we will present the Community Readiness Model and report the assessment results. The subsequent workshops are scheduled for Saturday, Nov 18, and Saturday, Dec 2.
