Dr. Gonzales is the Director of the Environmental Health (EH) Core in the New Mexico CARES Health Disparities Center, which builds on and expands the existing relationships between communities, policy makers, UNM researchers and physicians and nurses across NM to develop, implement, and sustain effective intervention strategies. The objective of the core is to shift from studying environmental health problems to creating effective and sustainable solutions to reduce environmental health disparities among New Mexico’s large and diverse Hispanic and Native American populations. Dr. Gonzales also has an active research program in colorectal cancer prevention. She is the PI and working collaboratively with Dr. Richard Hoffman and Dr. Ashwani Rajput on the Colorectal Disease Prevention Study, which examines colorectal cancer patients' risk and cancer screening patterns. This study builds on her published research on results of the New Mexico Behavioral Risk Factors Surveillance survey (BRFSS). Her analysis indicates that New Mexico Hispanics are less likely than non-Hispanic Whites to be in compliance with colorectal cancer screening guidelines, while having a higher prevalence of CRC-related risk factors including diabetes. In addition, Dr. Gonzales is the Assistant Director of the UNM Preventive Medicine Residency Program, where she has been an integral part of developing an innovative general preventive medicine and public health residency curriculum emphasizing the unique health needs of New Mexico.
