House of Puerto Rico San Diego

House of Puerto Rico San Diego Help us promote our rich Puerto Rican culture by becoming involved with the House of Puerto Rico, San Diego! The idea for a House of Puerto Rico in Balboa Park started in October 1972.

A group of San Diego Puerto Ricans led by Doña Casilda Pagan joined forces and organized ”La Casa de Puerto Rico.” After many years of fundraising, planning and hard work this vision is now a dream come true. The House of Puerto Rico Cottage Museum was inaugurated on Saturday, February 4, 2006.

Estoy trabajando para traducir ambos al español. Publicaré más cuando la versión en español esté lista. I am starting a couple studies as I try to learn more about how asthma affects Puerto Ricans. As I understand it, there may be a number of factors that play a role in whether you have asthma or not or how bad it is if you do have it. Please consider participating in either of the studies. More information below. Images: Text on blue and red background with pictures of a Puerto Rican flag, a scenic Puerto Rican view, and a University of Denver logo. Text:If you: Are 18 or over and Identify as Puerto Rican and Have asthma and Lived in Puerto Rico during Hurricanes Irma and Maria and Moved to the United States after the hurricanes: I would love to talk to you Lisa Colón from the University of Denver, Graduate School of Social Work is conducting a study to understand how the experience of asthma may have been affected by the 2017 hurricanes in Puerto Rico and moving to the United States. Eligible participants will engage in Interviews that may be approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours in length and receive a $50 gift card to thank them for their time. If interested, please contact Lisa Colón at [email protected] Principal Investigator: Lisa Colón, MA, Doctoral Candidate Faculty Sponsor: Yolanda Anyon, PhD OR For ANYONE who identifies as Puerto Rican: Lisa Colón from the University of Denver, Graduate School of Social Work is conducting a study to understand how the experience of asthma may affect Puerto Ricans differently based on where they were born, when they moved to the US if born in Puerto Rico, who else in their family has been diagnosed with asthma, and how much of their daily life is influenced by Puerto Rican culture and values. Eligible participants will respond to a series of questions that may take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete and may choose to enter a drawing for 1 of 4 $25 gift cards to thank them for their time. You can find the questionnaire by following this link (or typing it into your browser): https://tinyurl.com/PrAsthma

My name is Suzka. I have a storyline podcast with a number of characters. I am looking for a female voice with a thick Puerto Rican accent. She's spicy, young (25). I've made it easy. Recording your scripted voice can be done on your own phone and then emailed to me. If you have any questions let me know. Thank you.

Gratitude. Once, again ...It was that time of “December Nights”, when we volunteered for a great cause with “mucho gusto” at la Casita, again. Yes, Rain ☔️ or shine🌤 , local food lovers and enthusiasts from all over the world were there. We sold out and for that we were grateful. We worked as a resilient team and proudly shared our culture, folklore, music, and a taste of our delicious cuisine and even, the traditional ”coquito” at the Spirit Garden (only) . Grateful for our inspiring and therapeutic music that kept us going till closing time. With lot of pride and commitment, we all,as part of two resilient teams got the job done! 💪🏼💪🏼🇵🇷 Priceless! Isla Bendita on the West Coast! Nuestra Casita es su Casa. 🏠🍵🤗💪🏼🇵🇷 See you there , next year! ¡Blessed and Feliz Navidad to all!
