Auger Communications and Inter-Am have been collaborating on projects for more than a decade. Our partnership is dedicated to developing quality, culturally appropriate health education programs and materials for Latino families with low literacy skills. We work simultaneously in English and Spanish when developing bilingual materials. These products are extensively field-tested with diverse stakeholders. Our collaborative process preserves the spirit, meaning, and appropriateness of health messages across cultures. See Aprendo Press for samples of our work.

Partners since 2000, we have worked together in a variety of ways, including serving as a consultant to NCFH corporate headquarters. In 2003, we developed a model two-day cultural competency training program for health professionals and front-line staff serving Hispanic farmworkers.

University of North Carolina Center for Maternal & Infant Health

Chapel Hill, North Carolina

The Center for Maternal and Infant Health's mission is to improve the health of North Carolina's women and infants through quality clinical services, provider and patient education, research, advocacy, and statewide leadership. The Center’s care coordination team helps families with high-risk pregnancies and medically fragile infants to navigate a complex health care system, working with them to make sure they receive the best care available. The Center also works hard to facilitate smooth communication with hundreds of referring OB/GYNS and pediatricians across the state.

UNC Center staff serve on numerous statewide infant mortality prevention committees and public health campaigns. These include the Governor’s Child Fatality Task Force, the NC Perinatal Association, the Perinatal Health Committee, the SIDS Risk Reduction Committee, the Breastfeeding Workgroup, and the Women and Tobacco Coalition for Health. The Center provides leadership to two major state campaigns - one focusing on recurring preterm birth prevention and the second on smoking cessation for pregnant women and new mothers.


The Center also has a research portfolio with a focus on health services research. Currently, the UNC Center is the research institution partner for Auger Communications' Small Business Business Innovations Research (SBIR) Phase I grant funded through the National Center for Minority Health and Health Disparities and the National Institutes of Health.
