The NCLR/CSULB Center for Latino Community’s numerous research projects strive to eliminate disparities in health outcomes and provide access to quality health care, facilitate empowerment of youth through a variety of training and mentorship programs, and improve the cultural relevance and representation of Latino communities. Our Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) projects are extensive, while our overarching research efforts and results continue to provide national leadership in the field.


    The Advancing Nutrition Development through Alliances for Education and Leadership – ÁNDALE Scholars Program is designed to create academic and professional enhancement opportunities for undergraduate students in nutrition, health sciences, and kinesiology at CSULB and CSUMB.
