How exactly can the program benefit you?

Ask Mariana Arevalo, a graduate of the 2011 Éxito! program:

Éxito! was a boost of confidence and a tremendous encouragement for me to apply to doctoral programs. Now more than ever, I’m confident that Latino researchers are not only needed in our field, but we can make a difference in improving the health of Latinos in the U.S.,” Arevalo said. “Éxito! gave me leverage, resources, and lots of moral support to continue in my path to a doctoral program.”

Éxito! is funded by the National Cancer Institute and led by the Institute for Health Promotion Research at The UT Health Science Center at San Antonio, the team behind SaludToday.
