Congratulations to Nancy Barnett who just received an R01 grant renewal from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. The research will be an investigation of the indirect effect of brief alcohol intervention among college students and the ways that peer influence transmits behavior change in alcohol use.
Kristina Jackson presented a talk entitled "Alternate Representations of Subjective Effects: An Ecological Study of Simultaneous Alcohol and Marijuana Use" as part of the symposium "Novel Technologies and Integrated Approaches for Obtaining and Using Real-time Alcohol Consumption Data Collected in Naturalistic Environments" at the 19th Congress of the International Society for Biomedical Research on Alcoholism (ISBRA2018) in Kyoto Japan.
Kate Carey received a 4-year R01 from NIAAA, titled "Using Counter Attitudinal Advocacy to Change Drinking Behavior." Collaborators and co-PIs are Angelo DiBello, former CAAS post-doc, now in the Department of Psychology at Brooklyn College, and Clayton Neighbors, in the Department of Psychology at the University of Houston. This project is a two-site study (Brown and Houston) testing the comparative efficacy of two types of brief alcohol interventions for heavy drinking college students.
