Hispanic Community Health Study

Hispanic Community Health Study

The Miami Field Center represents a university-wide collaboration involving the College of Arts and Sciences and the Miller School of Medicine of the University of Miami (UM) together with multiple community partners including community-based primary care practices affiliated with Jackson Memorial Hospital / University of Miami (JMH/UM) , community-services agencies, the Miami-Dade County Health Department (MDCHD), and a Community Advisory Board. Within this context, the University of Miami provides expertise for the administration of all required questionnaires as well as components of medical examinations, recruitment, and follow-up activities. The Miami HCHS/SOL Community Advisory Coalition, which is an alliance of individuals and community organizations, supports the recruitment, retention, and health education efforts of the Miami Field Center and provides advice and guidance regarding potentially relevant relationships among the community, study participants, and the HCHS/SOL.
