Drs. Avelardo Valdez and Alice Cepeda receive Research Project Grant from NIMHD
Dr. Avelardo Valdez and Dr. Alice Cepeda have received a Notice of Award for a Research Project Grant (R01) from the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD). Their study, “Disparities in Health among Floating Immigrant Populations” is a 5-year, $3 million research project that will be conducted in Los Angeles and Mexico City. The study’s objective is to identify mechanisms by which immigration processes expose “floating populations” (those who move back and forth between the U.S. and Mexico either voluntarily or forced) to distinct environments, increases their susceptibility to risk behaviors and contributes to mental and physical health disparities. This international study will be conducted in collaboration with the University of Southern California (USC), the Instituto Nacional de Psiquiatría Ramon de la Fuente Muñiz (INPRFM), and the Centro para la Prevención y Atención Integral del VIH/SIDA de la CDMX (Clínica Condesa).
