Hi: I am trying to put together a local study of Diabetes in the Hispanic population of Central New York, and I cannot find any reference to statistics and facts, of "Latinos" with Diabetes in "Onondaga County". Although I am specifically searching for "incidents of diabetes in Onondaga county broken down by ethnicity", I could use any other type of information that links Diabetes with the Hispanic culture. Please, let me know if your department has this information, or if you can advice me where to inquire, or obtain it. Muchas Gracias; Hugo

Hi! I'm working with a multi-agency group on water quality improvement. We've got a "plan" that identifies key problems and lays out 13 broad goals to address the problems. In 2005 a coordinator was hired to coordinate the implementation of the plan. She took another position at the end of 2007 amid frustration. I have convinced the powers that be that we need to update the original plan so that we have clearer measures of success and a bonafide "coordination strategy". However, there's a push to hire a new coordinator as soon as possible. Here's my big question: would it be better to wait to hire a coordinator until after the plan is revised so we know what we need this person to coordinate or, to go ahead and hire a coordinator so s/he can be involved with revising the plan?

Trained as a clinical psychologist, my exposure to community psychology is limited. However, in reading the APA Task Force on Urban Psychology, I am interested pursuing more fully professional opportunities related to Urban Psychology. However, I have had a very difficult time finding additional resources (books, websites, journal articles) that might help me further my knowledge in this area. As this seems like an area that might fall within community psych, I am hoping you might have some ideas for the next best steps. Thank you for any insight you might be able to offer
