Proyecto Salud, a joint project of CORE/El Centro and Aurora Walker's Point Community Clinic, has been working in the Latino community of Milwaukee since 2006. Our mission is to create new avenues for social change and foster a community that embraces spiritual, mental and physical health. Working with an ecological approach to public health, our philosophy is one of collaboration and civic capacity building. We work to create avenues to shift the paradigm of 'power over' to 'power with' and 'power within'. The project addresses social determinants of health by taking into account neighborhood contexts, immigrant concerns, and other systemic and institutional factors that influence health.
