INVEST-CTN Fellow Focuses on Family Therapy

INVEST-Clinical Trials Network (CTN) Fellow Mario Zapata, M.D., M.Sc., focused primarily on brief strategic family therapy and ended his fellowship year by submitting a grant application to fund a pilot project testing the effectiveness of the brief strategic family therapy protocol in Colombia. Working at the CTN Florida Node at the University of Miami, Dr. Zapata also helped develop protocols testing the effectiveness of rapid HIV testing and counseling; 12-step behavioral interventions; Web-based treatment delivery; and emergency room screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment. He enrolled in academic courses about clinical trials and child and adolescent psychology, participated in scientific meetings, and presented his research to the CTN Steering Committee.
