That’s why we created the Éxito! Latino Cancer Research Leadership Training program. It offers an annual summer institute and internships to increase the number of master’s-degree-level Latinos who pursue a doctoral degree and a career in Latino health disparities research.
Éxito! has been a huge success—many graduates already are in doctoral programs.
Now you can have Éxito! in your organization!
Our new Éxito! Program Replication Manual outlines the steps and provide tools and resources so other organizations can develop their own versions of Éxito! across the country.
“We hope this manual makes it easy for dozens of Éxito! programs to crop up in academic settings across the country to increase the opportunity for Latinos and other minorities to study the cancer inequalities facing their native populations,” said Amelie G. Ramirez, DrPH, principal investigator of the original Éxito! program.
Éxito! and this replication manual are directed by the Institute for Health Promotion Research (IHPR) at the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio.
