UC Davis Health
Center Director receives two national awards for reducing Latino health disparities

Sergio Aguilar-Gaxiola, director of the UC Davis Center for Reducing Health Disparities, is the recipient of two national awards for his contributions to science and behavioral health research. 

The National Hispanic Science Network (NHSN) recently honored Aguilar-Gaxiola with the 2021 National Award of Excellence in Research by a Senior Investigator. The award is presented to a researcher who  has made “consistent contributions to the field of drug abuse that are culturally innovative, demonstrate some of the unique aspects of drug abuse among Hispanics, and/or have impacted the larger field of drug abuse research,” among other criteria. 

NHSN is a national and international organization that strives to make significant advances in the field of drug abuse research, including addressing health disparities with an emphasis on advancing health equity for Hispanics. 

In addition, Aguilar-Gaxiola last month received the 2021 Lifetime Award for the Advancement of Latino Behavioral Health from the National Latino Behavioral Health Association (NLBHA). Aguilar-Gaxiola received the award during the NLBHA’s annual conference, a virtual event at which he was a keynote speaker.
