[Research Presentation] Purpose: Findings from various studies have indicated that Hispanic men in the U.S. are disproportionately affected by substance abuse, the perpetration and victimization of intimate partner violence and HIV/AIDS.  Engaging members of this population for research can be complicated related to various factors.  The purpose of this presentation is to describe the experiences and challenges of locating, recruiting, enrolling and sampling members of this population for research.  Methods: A critical appraisal of previous research illustrating methods and strategies to study this population were reviewed before conducting this study.  Using a variety of recruitment strategies and research sites that were described in the literature, and adapting theses strategies for this study, this presentation details the research team's experiences.  Results: Various strategies and interventions were used to locate, recruit, enroll and sample members of this population.  Strategies employed by this research team were continuously reviewed and modified to help overcome barriers in conducting research with this population.  Conclusion: Researchers interested in conducting studies with Hispanic men should be aware of potential difficulties in locating this "hard-to-reach" population.  Opportunities for adapting existing methodologies and creating/testing innovative strategies for locating, recruiting, enrolling and sampling members of this population will be presented.
