The Latina Researchers Network supports research on and by underrepresented scholars and is committed to providing underrepresented researchers with the tools to succeed in research activities. We are committed to showcasing the work of leading Latina health and behavioral science researchers and other activist scholars and how their research influences social policy. Toward this effort, the Network provides professional development programs and virtual workshops focused on special topics such as; successful dissertation proposals; navigating the tenure process; and state-of-the art methodologies and research with vulnerable populations. We also host Pláticas ™, virtual conversation hours that provide a more intimate opportunity to focus on professional development topics and support.
