Dr. Mario De La Rosa, Director and Principal Investigator of CRUSADA and C-SALUD, has been invited to participate as expert faculty in the 2011 Translational Health Disparities Course: Integrating Science, Practice and Policy at the National Institutes of Health. Dr. De La Rosa’s expertise in the area of disparities research rooted in Latino culture and behavior, prompted the NIMHD Curriculum committee to recommend his collaboration in this event. Irene Dankwa-Mullan, Director, Office of Innovation and Program Coordination, NIMHD, invited Dr. De La Rosa to participate in the following module and topic:
In 2010, the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) launched the inaugural NIH Translational Health Disparities Course to provide a forum for preeminent scholars and faculty to discuss current and emerging health disparities issues defined by leading science, clinical practice and policy. A diverse faculty came from within the NIH, academia, industry and the community to share their knowledge and experiences relevant to health disparities research, intervention and policy. Scholars, who participated in the course, exhibited a strong commitment to health disparities as evidenced by their outstanding applications and letters of recommendation.
Dr. De La Rosa will be part of a distinguished group of faculty with diverse expertise in health disparities research to provide a forty-five minute lecture followed by a question and answer period.
