It has long been my dream to integrate Hispanic family-based prevention programs into primary care. Parents can be such a protective structure against deviancy and problem behavior, but it’s very difficult for families to navigate daily life at this time. Many of our parents work two jobs, and COVID-19 makes everything more difficult, which speaks to the need to have parenting training programs. Now we have a $3 million grant from NIH to support further development of our Familias Unidas and eHealth Familias Unidas intervention programs. Families learn from each other, so part of our goal is to make parents the change agents.”
