Founded in 1988, the Mid-Atlantic Research and Training Institute for Community and Behavioral Health (MARTI) is one of the first 40-plus centers and institutes at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP). For decades, MARTI has been a powerhouse organized around a consortium of academic and professional experts in the field of alcohol abuse treatment, domestic violence intervention, and related mental health issues. 

Since 2012, the institute’s new director, associate director, and research associates have expanded the institute’s early focus to include new initiatives—among them, alcohol and drug research, veterans’ reintegration, family and mental health issues, training conferences for health professionals and educators, and community outreach.

MARTI’s many contributions to both scientific and service communities is recognized by government and private funders as evidenced by the continuing and increasing levels of grants and contracts awarded. More important, the institute’s long and consistent track record in the community continues, and its credibility and high regard among various constituencies remains resilient.

This series of presentations is designed to interest and inform faculty and students about the differences in health care among populations and the many barriers that some groups face in obtaining health care.
