Dr. Goodyear Chavanne receives Research Enhancement Action Fund

Dr. Kimberly Goodyear Chavanne received the Research Enhancement Action Fund (REAF) for her study to examine, "Understanding the impact of race on public attitudes toward individuals and communities with opioid addiction."

REAF is the Research Enhancement Action Fund from the Center of Alcohol and Addiction Studies that aims to support data-driven projects aimed to address health disparities and social injustice in alcohol and other drug use and its consequences among minority populations. 

The overall goal of Dr. Goodyear Chavanne's study is to gain a greater understanding of racial health disparities for individuals and groups by examining stigma attitudes toward opioid addiction.
