To improve the science of CBPR and reduce health inequities, she is Principal Investigator of an NINR-funded RO1 to research best partnering practices associated with health outcomes and to develop a partnership evaluation/reflection toolkit. She has collaboratively produced with Latin American colleagues a train-the trainer Empowerment, Participatory Research and Health Promotion curriculum (initially sponsored by Pan American Health Organization), available in Spanish, Portuguese and English; and co-sponsors an annual summer Institute in CBPR for Health at the University of New Mexico.
