The over-arching goal of the NIMHD-funded CRECD Program is to support educational activities that enhance the diversity of the biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research workforce. • Three of his grant applications were funded by CMS to reduce health disparities associated with medication-related challenges among older Latino and African-American hypertensive and diabetic adults. • He have served several major institutional grants, including Project EXPORT, the AXIS program, the CTSI program, RTRN, and the Cancer Research Center at the CDU. .
