Join us as we welcome Dr. Guillermo Prado for the Health Equity Leadership Series, hosted by the Office of Health Equity and Inclusion at the University of Michigan School of Nursing.
The goal of the Health Equity Leadership Series is to bring together members of the UM community to engage in critical thinking, learning, and dialogue about topics in health equity. Each month we welcome scholars and organizational leaders who are looking seriously at questions around health equity within Nursing and healthcare to share their expertise. Following the speaker’s presentation, audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions for our speakers.
On April 13th, we will be welcoming Dr. Guillermo (Willy) Prado of the University of Miami. Dr. Prado is Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs; Dean of the Graduate School; and Professor of Nursing and Health Studies, Public Health Sciences, and Psychology at the University of Miami. Previously, he was Miller Professor and Director of the Division of Prevention Science and Community in the Department of Public Health Sciences at the University of Miami. As a researcher, Prado broadly focuses on the development, evaluation, and dissemination of parenting interventions for Hispanic youth and their families. His research has appeared in over 170 peer-reviewed articles and chapters. He has been PI, Co-I, or mentor of over $100 million dollars of NIH funding. He is currently PI of NIDA/NIH funded study evaluating the effectiveness of an online adaption of Familias Unidas, an evidence-based family intervention, for Hispanic youth in primary care. He is also the Director of the Investigator Development Core of the NIMHD/NIH funded Center for Latino Health Research Opportunities. His research has been recognized by numerous organizations, including the National Hispanic Science Network, the Society for Prevention Research, and the Society for Adolescence and has been featured in several domestic and international news outlets, including the Miami Herald and CNN en Español.
