GCAHR welcomes Dr. Ricardo Sánchez Huesca

 

The Global Center for Applied Health Research welcomed our research partner, Dr. Ricardo Sánchez Huesca, Normative Deputy General Director of the Centros de Integración Juvenil, last week.  Dr. Sánchez Huesca works in leading prevention, treatment, research and education programs across Mexico.  His presentation, "Panorama of Research in a National Network for the Attention of Drug Use" was attended by members of the City of Phoenix police department as well as other collaborators including those at the Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León.  Our research team, led by Dr. Marsiglia, then met with him separately to discuss different strategies in which our programs would be able to connect and the possibility of starting a pilot program in the near future.
