Faculty Research Affiliates

The SIRC Faculty Research Affiliate (FRA) program supports ASU faculty engaged in research, teaching or service focused on minority health and health disparities research, training, and community engagement. Through a rigorous application process, appointed FRAs can receive methodological and statistical support, access to an extensive measures library and data sets, grant development and implementation support, and access to a network of health disparities researchers and national/international community partners.

For more information about our FRA program, please contact: Shannon Johnson, Center Operations Manager, at shannon.k.johnson@asu.edu
