Time:Noon-1 p.m.
Description:"Twenty Years of Research in the Rio Grande Valley: Lessons Learned in Community Research" is a colloquium presented by Dr. Sharon Brown, Ph.D., R.N., F.A.A.N., from The University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing.

Starr County is a Texas-Mexico border community that is 97 percent Hispanic, the poorest county in Texas and one of the poorest in the U.S. Similar to many other medically underserved communities, Starr County is characterized by poverty, pollution, deprivation, limited health-care access, and high rates of type 2 diabetes. Since 1988, Brown and her colleagues have conducted research with Mexican Americans who resided in Starr County in order to test community-based diabetes self-management interventions that were culturally tailored for Spanish-speaking Mexican Americans. In this presentation, Brown presents the highlights and lessons learned during her 20 years of research on the Texas-Mexico border.

Brown is the Joseph H. Blades centennial memorial professor in nursing and the former associate dean for research in the School of Nursing and the former associate vice president for research for The University of Texas at Austin.
