Purpose: To explore how maternal acculturation to U.S. mainstream culture may have an influence on the health promotion and protection behaviors of low-income, Spanish speaking mothers of Mexican origin that live in San Antonio, Texas. Rational: Acculturation is defined as the cultural change that occurs when individuals or groups from different cultures come into continuous first-hand contact with each other (Redfield, Linton& Herskovits, 1936). The acculturation to U.S. culture by people of Mexican descent has been found to have beneficial effects on some health behaviors and outcomes, and detrimental effects on others (Franzini, Ribble & Keddie, 2001). While child health promotion and protection behaviors may vary according to acculturation, few studies have examined those maternal behaviors within the context of acculturation. Methods: Mixed methods will be used to better understand the relationship between child health promotion and protection behaviors and maternal level of acculturation. In this approach, the child health promotion and protection behaviors will be explored using data collected with mothers of Mexican descent. The Acculturation Rating Scale for Mexican Americans-II will be used to measure maternal level of acculturation. The qualitative data and the maternal acculturation level will be placed on a matrix to look for clustering and/or patterns (Miles and Huberman, 1994). Results: Conclusions will be drawn based on noted patterns, themes and/or clustering of data. Funded by: NIH/NINR F31 NR 008174.
