Mayo Clinic, Rochester Public Schools’ Hawthorne Education Center, Winona State University and various community agencies are working together to identify opportunities to improve the health of immigrant and refugee families in Rochester.
To support this partnership and research, the National Institutes of Health has awarded a grant to Rochester Healthy Community Partnership, a collaboration that includes community-based organizations, local health service organizations and academic institutions. The partnership will develop exercise and nutrition programs with immigrant and refugee families. The project is called, “Healthy Immigrant Families: Working Together To Move More and To Eat Well.”
