The specific aims of our National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) funded MHIRT program are: 1) To recruit the very best young researchers from groups with significant health disparities, particularly Latinos. 2) To help the trainees develop the research and professional skills to reduce and eliminate mental health disparities for Latinos. 3) To increase the number of researchers from communities with significant health disparities who receive research oriented doctoral degrees.
