Victor Garcia, director of MARTI-CBH and distinguished university professor in the Department of Anthropology, reviewed funding proposals in June and October 2016 as an invited member of the National Institutes of Health’s Health Disparities and Equity Promotion Study Section.

Members of this and other study sections review research and demonstration grant applications three times a year according to the NIH review cycle. The HDEP study section reviews applications that address health disparities, health equality, and issues related to access to care and treatment faced by vulnerable populations. The study section is comprised of medical doctors, biostatisticians, and public health specialists from an array of academic disciplines.  For more information, please visit the Health Disparities and Equity Promotion Study Section website.

From 2008 to 2013, Garcia served as a member of NIH’s Community Influences on Health Behavior Study Section. He also has served as an ad hoc member of NIH special emphasis panels.
