Biography

Dr. Flavio F. Marsiglia  is a Regents’ Professor in the School of Social Work, College of Public Service and Community Solutions at Arizona State University.   He is the founding director of the Southwest Interdisciplinary Research Center (SIRC), an exploratory center of excellence on minority heath and health disparities funded by the National Institutes of Health. Marsiglia is also Director of the Center for International Translational Intervention Research (CITIR).  CITIR conducts research and training in partnership with universities in Australia, China, Burundi, Guatemala, Mexico, Pakistan, Spain, Taiwan and Uruguay.

Marsiglia’ s research on cultural diversity and youth substance prevention is widely recognized in the prevention field and credited with a measurable reductions in drug use and other high-risk behaviors among youth in Arizona, across the US and in other countries.  He has developed and tested culturally grounded interventions to prevent substance abuse especially among Latino and other minority populations of the Southwest, including the school-based "keepin'it REAL" substance-abuse model prevention program that has been extensively replicated and tested in the U.S. and internationally.

He is a member of the National Academy of Social Work and Social Welfare and has received numerous awards and recognitions for his ongoing mentoring of early career scholars. He received his social work education from the University of the Republic-Uruguay and his Ph.D. from Case Western Reserve University. He has published more than 140 peer reviewed articles that have significantly advanced knowledge about Latino adolescent risk and protective factors and the relationship between acculturation and health. He is also the co-author with Stephen Kulis of the widely adopted textbook: Diversity, Oppression and Change (Oxford Press).
