Message from the Director

The Center for Research on U.S. Latino HIV/AIDS and Drug Abuse (CRUSADA) continues to address the twin epidemics of substance abuse and HIV/AIDS in Latino communities throughout southern Florida. The Center is uniquely positioned to advance our understanding of these growing problems because of its geographical location and its association with Florida International University (FIU), one of the twenty-five largest universities in the country and the largest Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) in the mainland United States. CRUSADA's association with FIU also provides an exceptional opportunity to translate research results into best-practice models that could be utilized by community-based agencies to curb the spread of HIV/AIDS and substance abuse.
