New Jersey Immigrant Health Promotion Project
The New Jersey Immigrant Health Promotion Project, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, is a community-based research project designed to gather qualitative and quantitative data exploring the relationships between alcohol and other drugs (AOD) service access and utilization, and parenting practices and cultural variables such as acculturation and ethnic identify. The project uses a mixed methods approach (face-to-face interviews and surveys) to gather data from immigrant parents from Latin America and the Caribbean residing in New Jersey counties with large numbers of immigrants - including Essex, Hudson, Passaic, Union and the Southwest counties of Cumberland, Salem and Gloucester. This research is currently in progress and will be used to inform the development or enhancement of culturally-relevant AOD and related services for immigrant families and children.
