Interview with David Cordova, Ph.D.


Congratulations to AAMFT Member and Minority Fellowship Program alum (2007-2009), David Cordova. Dr. Cordova has been awarded an early career award from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (PI, Cordova, Grant # U01PS003316-01) exceeding $1,000,000. The Minority HIV/AIDS Research Initiative (MARI) is to build capacity in Black and Hispanic Communities and among Black and Hispanic Researchers to conduct HIV/AIDS Epidemiologic and Prevention Research. The funds will help help in narrowing the gap of health inequities among Hispanics particualrly as it relates to drug abuse and HIV, but also to advance the field of MFT and evidence-based family preventive interventions. This four year study aims to develop and test the efficacy of a family-based drug abuse and HIV preventive intervention to be delivered via the internet. Dr. Cordova also received the National Institutes of Health Loan Repayment Programs which pays for his student loans in return for a two year commitment to research.
