This is a full-day training on the principles and practices of Popular Education for a group of academics and medical professionals associated with Tufts University, and organizers and advocates from five community-based organizations in Somerville, MA. They are participating in a research project aimed at improving nutrition, encouraging physical activity, and reducing stress for immigrant Brazilian, Haitian, and Latino families. Some members of this group will be designing a curriculum for the educational component of this project; other members will be conducting the outreach and community education sessions.
