New Opportunities for Community-based Work in Adolescent Drug Abuse
Study Abroad Testimonial
The Institute for Translational Research Education (ITRE) in Adolescent Drug Abuse is expanding to NAU, bringing opportunities for graduate students at NAU to learn about community-based research in this field, and to partner with local community agencies for a service learning project. This federally-funded, state-of-the-art research education program teaches the practical skills of translational research and implementation science in the field of adolescent behavioral health. The Institute and its outstanding graduate scholars work with community partners, academic mentors, and national mentors to advance the field of translational science and promote evidence-based practice.
