University Series - Drexel Partnership

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Claudia Zumaeta Castillo, an MPH student at Drexel's Dornsife School of Public Health to discuss some current Community Health and Prevention studies that she and other Public Health students are working on under the supervision of Ana Martinez-Donate, PhD.

WHCI began collaborating with Dr. Martinez-Donate and the team at Drexel a little over two years ago. The purpose of the collaboration was to connect our community-driven knowledge and trainings to the technical expertise and research capabilities that a university like Drexel and its students provide.

There are currently two studies we are collaborating on with Dr. Martinez-Donate. The first is CRiSOL, which stands for Cultivating Resilient and Strong Opinion Leaders. The CRiSOL project will train community leaders to identify and help families, friends and neighbors solve problems in their own communities.

The second study is called Entre Lineas (Between the Lines) which is about the health and well-being of children of Latino immigrant families. The purpose of the study is to understand the impact that current immigration policies are having on the physical and mental/emotional health of U.S. citizen children of Latino immigrant parents.

Learn more by watching the short video below, as well as on social media for CRiSOL on instagram: prog.crisol and on facebook: Programa Crisol & for Entre Lineas on the website:

WHCI can provide expertise in a variety of areas including HIV prevention, culturally competent trainings, counseling and testing, language interpretation, and much more. If you are a university or organization interested in collaborating with us, please reach out by e-mail at: or phone: 215-988-9970

Until next time,
