The Center for Latino Health Research Opportunities (CLaRO) is a collaboration between health disparities researchers at the University of Miami and Florida International University. CLaRO focuses on substance abuse, violence/trauma, and HIV/AIDS (SAVA) syndemic conditions affecting vulnerable Latino populations, including seasonal farmworkers, sexual/gender minorities, and youth.
CLaRO advances the aims of El Centro’s Measures Library, which enhances capacity for research with non-English speaking participants by collecting measures with Spanish translations. By facilitating access to translated measures we aim to encourage investigators to include non-English speaking participants in their studies
The CLaRO Training Institute provides early career investigators with research experience and increases their skills to develop and submit NIH research grant applications. Topics include: NIMHD’s health disparities research framework, etiology of health disparities in Latino populations, & grantsmanship.
