The Latin@ Research Group aims to address racial inequity in research by advocating for increased representation of Latin@s and their families in research conducted by universities in the Greater Milwaukee Area. Additionally, the Latin@ Research Group also aims to address gender inequity in higher education by supporting local initiatives that strengthen the educational pipeline for Latin@ students to pursue health related professions.
