APA's Office of Ethnic Minority Affairs, in partnership with the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, runs a program that seeks to increase ethnic-minority — including Latino — representation in such psychology research areas as stress and drug abuse. The program brings together major research institutions with predominantly ethnic-minority two- and four-year colleges to provide students the opportunity to participate in psychological research. As a measure of its success, the program, now in its seventh year, has encouraged 55 ethnic-minority students to join doctoral programs, says Bertha Holliday, PhD, director of APA's Office of Ethnic Minority Affairs. For more information, visit the program website or see the December Monitor.
