Welcome to our webpage!

We are a team of advocates and scholars committed to understanding and addressing the unique challenges faced by the Mexican and Latinx Indigenous communities in San Luis Obispo County. This innovative study, funded by the County of San Luis Obispo Public Health Department, has unveiled critical findings about this population's demographics, health needs, and living conditions.

 

On this website, you can find reports and data from our assessment. We aim to equip service providers, community groups, and advocates with the knowledge to serve this community better. In collaboration with stakeholders and the community, we are determined to bridge gaps and foster positive change, with a deep commitment to improving documented health disparities related to access, resources, and well-being.
