ABSTRACT Background: Community-based participatory research (CBPR) facilitates vulnerable communities and scientists collaborating to address pertinent health issues. For Latinx farmworkers, the employment of children and their resulting morbidity and mortality in the hazardous farm environment is a concern. Communicating child farmworker research results to farmworkers and service providers must take into account their language, literacy, and educational characteristics. Objectives: We describe the collaborative development and dissemination of research findings on child farmworkers by a CBPR partnership with the Latinx farmworker community. Methods: Key points for communication with infographics were abstracted from peer-reviewed research papers. An iterative process sought community partners’ input as the research partners developed the infographics. Lessons Learned: We developed infographics on heat-related illness, education, and musculoskeletal impacts of child labor, guided by published criteria for effective infographics. Efforts to disseminate finished infographics needed greater rigor. Conclusions: Infographics provide a means to communicate CBPR findings to community members.
