Frank Dillon Awarded R15 grant from NIMHD

Dr. Frank Dillon, an affiliated faculty member of C-SALUD , was recently awarded a R15 research grant from the National Institutes of Minority Health and Helath Disparities/NIH. The award will fund a 3-year study , titled HIV Testing & Latino Gay, Bisexual, and other MSM, will determine combinations of psychosocial and cultural factors that must be targeted within different subgroups of adult Latino gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (LMSM) to maximize efficacy of HIV testing prevention efforts. As part of the project, four undergraduate health disparity research fellowship positions will be filled at the University at Albany –State University of new York to increase (a) the number of researchers and professionals from minority and medically underserved populations trained in behavioral research and (b) increase the quality of the training provided to behavioral researchers conducting investigations on health disparities. Dr. Dillon attributes much of the success of this grant proposal to the wealth of experience and knowledge gained via his affiliation with C-SALUD since 2005.
