Comunidades Latinas Unidas En Servicio (CLUES), Impacts and Opportunities: Results from A Discussion of Clues Work in the Twin Cities and Southeast Metropolitan Areas

In 2013, CLUES received funding from the Center for Prevention at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota to implement policy, systems, and environmental changes to improve the health of residents in the Twin Cities metropolitan area and greater Minnesota. CLUES� work has primarily focused on working with businesses and organizations within the Latino community to adopt policies related to tobacco control, healthy eating, and active living. In December 2014, a group of 8 project stakeholders were invited to a Ripple Effect Mapping discussion about the project�s impact in the community. The discussion was intended not only to provide the participants a chance to consider the project�s success in achieving its intended goals, but also to identify the indirect or unexpected project impacts. This document summarizes the key themes from the discussion.
