Dr. Zapolski and Devin present their papers at a symposium concerning racial/ethnic differences in predictors of substance use during adolescence.

Last week, the PRSIM lab attended the Society for Prevention Research's (SPR's) 2017 annual meeting in Washington, DC. Dr. Zapolski and graduate students Devin Banks and Alia Rowe had the opportunity to present. 

Dr. Zapolski presented a recently published paper examining the relationship between ethnic identity, drug attitudes and drug use among adolescents of various races/ethnicities. Devin presented a related paper examining racial/ethnic differences in the relationship between alcohol-related beliefs and alcohol use throughout adolescence. Alia also presented a poster and participated in the student poster contest. Her presentation addressed the interaction of depression and experiences of bullying on substance use among adolescents.  

The team enjoyed networking, sharing their research, and learning about new advances in the field. See below for some snapshots and see our research page for more information on our current projects and recent publications.
