Dr. Maichou Lor | Grant Award

Dr. Maichou Lor, PhD, RN, was awarded a Baldwin grant to support the study Partnering with the Hmong Community to Build Better Medical Translation Tools and Preserve Hmong Narratives to Reduce Health Disparities. Baldwin grants are funded through generous gifts to the UW–Madison from Ira and Ineva Reilly Baldwin. The primary research aim is to produce a culturally and linguistically specific Hmong medical terminology resource that is informed by both Hmong interpreters and community members across generations and dialects. The investigative team includes linquist, Dr. Nathan Badenoch (Villanova University), community leader in Hmong medical interpretation, Ms. Caitlin Vang and a community advisory group. Congratulations to Dr. Lor.
