Martin Romero, a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill, will be presenting to the Social and Behavioral Health Research Group on youth contributions, experiences and perspectives in the study of health and resilience. This presentation will center on three studies that best exemplify Romero’s past and current research on Latinx youth contributions, experience and perspectives in two contexts: family food practices and discrimination and coping. Using a multi-method, dual-perspective approach, Romero will highlight how, when and why some youth are involved in tasks such as family food preparation and family protection tactics.
