 A Community of Research and Training

The Latino Alcohol and Health Disparities Research (LAHDR) Center seeks to reduce alcohol and health disparities through research on the development, course and treatment of alcohol use disorders among Hispanics.

We are a multidisciplinary, cooperative network of students, researchers, and professionals who join to inspire healthy change for alcohol behavior in the Paso del Norte Region.



The goal of LAHDR’s research area is to understand behavior change as it relates to alcohol use and explore the components related to alcohol use in order to promote related research and grant funding success.


The goal of LAHDR’s training area is to facilitate different forms of knowledge translation related to Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Screening and Brief Motivational Interventions (SBMI) to create connections to relevant practitioners.


The goal of the LAHDR’s engagement area is to increase the center's visibility and capacities as a resource, establishing local, national, and international partnerships, and educating our region and the broader community.
