He is the author of Making the Mexican Diabetic: Race, Science, and the Genetics of Inequality. Montoya is also the director of the Community Knowledge Project, which is an experimental space for communities of all kinds to learn and engage in action together.

Equally important, he believes that making community is a birthright and that health and wellbeing require it.
