Progreso Latino – Dilenia Cruz

Progreso Latino has been a long-time partner with the Butler Hospital Memory and Aging Program (MAP). The relationship started off by MAP being a vendor at an annual health fair hosted by Progreso Latino. The most notable partnership was when MAP won a diversity grant through ADNI-3 and it led to a Brain Health Room being set up for their seniors. The Brain Health Room was a space MAP and the community liaison (Dilenia Cruz) could use for one-on-one discussions about memory concerns.

Dilenia, the leadership, and staff at Progreso Latino have been nothing but welcoming to our program. Whether we are joining the Central Falls community for a family event, helping at their weekly food pantry or just providing a presentation, everyone has been incredibly generous with their time.
