The Health Disparities and Cultural Identities (HDCI) Lab is housed in the Department of Psychology at Florida International University. Using interdisciplinary approaches, our research brings attention to the ways psychological and sociocultural factors affect health outcomes in diverse adolescent through adult populations. We have examined such issues as intimate partner violence, sexually transmitted infections (e.g. HPV, HIV/ AIDS), and sexual messaging in popular culture. The ultimate goal of our research is to contribute to the reduction of health disparities.
