    Dr. Navarro’s work is focused on the use of community-based participatory interventions to improve health status and access to health care with a special emphasis on program evaluation and health equity. Funding from the National Cancer Institute, the Tobacco Related Disease Research Program, the American Cancer Society California Division and various foundations has supported Dr. Navarro’s research as principal investigator for over 25 years. Her seminal evidence-based community health advisor work has been widely disseminated. The Por La Vida model has further proved to represent a solid foundation for innovative community-centered projects engaging diverse communities as partners.

Dr. Navarro has also served as director in the development of the Bachelor of Science in Public Health (BSPH) Advanced Practicum, a promising new component of the UC San Diego BSPH that integrates the academic public health curriculum with applied research endeavors, community linkages and student-centered experiential learning.
