Description

Glenn Martinez, CLAS faculty affiliate and Director of the Center for Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, has received a seed grant from OSU’s Office of Research dedicated to COVID-19-related research for his project, “Social vulnerability, sociolinguistic environment, and access to COVID-19 information among Spanish-speakers in Columbus, Ohio.” The project will address enduring racial and ethnic health disparities by assessing the “sources, trust, satisfaction, and comprehension of COVID-19 information by Spanish speakers” in the city and correlating that data with social vulnerability indexing (SVI). Upon completion, the study will be shared with the participants themselves and include “a set of evidence-based recommendation to assist planners in disseminating information more effectively through the duration of the pandemic.” Congratulations Glenn!
