CLaRO

CLaRO is a National Institutes of Health U54 Specialized Center that spans two institutions in Miami-Dade County, Florida: the University of Miami and Florida International University.


Specifically, this Center is funded by the National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities (#U54MD002266). CLaRO is led by Principal Investigators Dr. Victoria Mitrani (University of Miami) and Dr. Mario De La Rosa (Florida International University).

The activities of CLaRO are conducted under the unifying theme of addressing substance abuse, violence/trauma and HIV/AIDS (SAVA) syndemic conditions affecting Latino populations. The Center aims to develop interventions targeting a range of vulnerable Latino subgroups, including seasonal farmworkers, sexual/gender minorities, and youth.

CLaRO continues and expands the health disparities research of two NIMHD Centers of Excellence, respectively housed within the University of Miami and Florida International University.
