ItemIRB Research Proposal: Understanding barriers to substance abuse treatment(2016) Pinedo, MiguelThis two-year pilot study aimed to 1) to gain greater understanding of barriers to specialty substance abuse treatment among Whites, African Americans, and Latinos with lifetime substance abuse disorders; 2) to compare and contrast barriers to specialty substance abuse treatment by race/ethnicity and gender among participants with lifetime AUD; and 3) using findings from Aims 1 & 2, to develop a new quantitative scale to assess barriers to specialty substance abuse treatment ItemIRB Human Subjects Protocol: ENLACE(2015) Parra-Medina, DeborahThe purpose of this study is to determine if a promotora-led intervention that takes a comprehensive, multi-level, community-based approach to promoting physical activity (PA) is effective among a particularly underserved segment of Latinas. We hypothesize that Latinas in the promotora-led PA Intervention will significantly increase minutes per week of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) compared to Latinas in the attention-control group.
