Dr. Eden Robles
My research interests are in the areas of minority substance use and mental health disparities research, and the cultural and socioeconomic influences on substance use and mental health related behaviors. More specifically, I focus on program development and evaluation, specifically, of treatment and practice adapted for bilingual-bicultural environments.
