Hilda García-Pérez is a social epidemiologist and demographer with a primary research interest in the influence of social factors on health outcomes. She has investigated gender differences in the experience of late adulthood and the health benefits of social support systems for elderly persons in Northern Mexico as well as the connection between contextual factors, physical activity and chronic disease in reproductive age women. She also has been involved in applied research projects, including community-based interventions focused on cervical cancer prevention among indigenous Mixtecas. Her current work focus primarily in urban areas of Mexico and the Southwest borderlands where she is examining the burden of sexual and reproductive morbidities on women’s quality of life; sexual behavior among high school students in Guanajuato; and access to health services in communities along the Arizona-Sonora border.
