Adrian Juarez's research objectives include contributing to existing knowledge regarding the health status in historically marginalized urban population groups. His current focus consists of understanding facilitators and barriers to HIV testing access in specific Hispanic population groups such as migrants/immigrants, transgendered individuals, etc.
Additionally, he would also like to advance current understanding regarding Hispanic identity and classification in relation to community-level health disparities.
