Congratulations to Sarah Webber, MD and Natalie Guerrero, PhD, who were recently awarded a one-year grant through the UW Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) Pilot Award Program. This $10,000 award, for the project "Community health worker pilot program for Latino mothers and infants," will evaluate a targeted, evidence-based, linguistically and culturally relevant Community Wellness Worker-led postpartum support group program to improve maternal-child wellness. The goals of the intervention, called Prosperar, are to develop a wellness promotion program that will build capacity in the Latino community through preventative health education to improve maternal and infant wellness.
