Centro SOL collaborates with researchers by reviewing English or Spanish study materials that affect participants such as consent and assent forms, recruitment materials, survey materials, interview guides, and others. Materials are reviewed to assess their use of plain language for health literacy and appropriateness for the target population. Centro SOL no longer provides translation services.
The majority of materials reviewed by Centro SOL require approval from the IRB. We highly recommend collaborating with Centro SOL for material review prior to submitting to the IRB. The Latino Family Advisory Board (LFAB) and Youth Advisory Board (YAB) are key resources for reviewing study materials.
