I have dreamt of having my research study on Latinos’ religious healing practices (i.e., botánicas) published in my mother tongue, Spanish! And here it is: my latest article (and the last one I will publish this year, for sure) that was just released by Latin American Research Review. This project means so much to me and it can now be shared with broader audiences. I am so grateful to all study participants and the dozen or amazing coordinators and research assistants who worked with me throughout the years. Finally, a few words of appreciation to my Cuban colleagues and friends, whose knowledge of Santeria and Afro-Caribbean religions continues to inspire me (intellectually as well as emotionally) in countless ways.

The exhibit has been placed at the Marine Air Terminal rotunda (Terminal A) of LaGuardia Airport in New York City.
