I really appreciate your interest in learning more about our work and activities. At our Endowed Center we are committed to promote the development of high-quality research that helps us to better understand the health disparities existing in our population. We believe that through the integration of training and educational activities, better research infrastructure, and partnership with our communities, we can contribute to the elimination of health disparities. One of our main activities is to provide support to the School of Medicine’s faculty, fellows, residents, and students so they can have a better experience in their research endeavors. We have a dedicated staff, qualified to assist these initiatives through the different stages of the research process. Here in our website you can find who we are, what we do and how we can help you in your research endeavor. You will also find information about our staff and different resources that can be of interest for your research, or for your personal growth as a researcher. Please take a few minutes to review our website and go through a list of our projects and activities. We have diverse resources that might be of help for you, so feel free to explore our website and contact us if you have any questions.

Thanks for visiting us, and we look forward to working with you in the future!
