Science Education & Community Outreach

The overall objective of the Science Education Core component is to develop educational programs which stimulate faculty and student interest in alcohol research thereby increasing the understanding of the role and impact of alcohol abuse on minority populations. Specific focus is on prevention, intervention, and treatment strategies as these areas do not receive sufficient attention or priority status in the design of educational programs in medical schools. For the most part, professional schools gear their educational programs and curricula to the etiology and cause of diseases and management of disabling conditions.

Current projects include:

  1. Biennial Conference: Advances in Alcohol & Addictions Research in Minorities
  2. Computer based courses and web-based modules
  3. Pre-college Alcohol Education Program for High School Students
  4. Alcohol Education for Master of Social Worker Students
  5. Medical Education Prevention and Brief Intervention Program
  6. Addiction Medicine Elective Course for Medical Students
  7. Community Based Outreach and Information Dissemination
  8. Partnership with National Medical Association for Alcohol Symposia
  9. Partnership with National Academy on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD)
  10. Lonnie Mitchell Symposia on Advanced Alcoholism
  11. Alcohol and Addiction Research Journal Club
  12. Video Conferencing and Distance Learning
