Research Interests Minimize    

Broadly speaking, my research interests lie in the development and evaluation of brief motivational interventions in the medical setting to promote health behavior change and improve health outcomes among Latinos and the underserved.  More specifically, I have published extensively on alcohol related health disparities and the application of brief motivational interventions to ameliorate these disparities.  My research has been funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, the National Institute of Drug Abuse and the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities.
