The Southwest Interdisciplinary Research Center (SIRC) has received a $6.3 million dollar research award from the National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) of the National Institutes of Health.

“Health Disparities Research at SIRC: Cultural Processes in Risk and Resiliency” is a continuation of the initial 5-year grant received in 2007. The award will fund research on substance abuse and obesity prevention with Latino youth and their families in central and south Phoenix neighborhoods; a statewide study of substance use among urban Indian youth; and a look at cardiovascular disease in black men in the Valley.

SIRC is affiliated with the School of Social Work in the College of Public Programs at Arizona State University.
