The American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse publication coverADA Special Edition focuses on AI/AN communities

The American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse recently published a special edition devoted to NIH-funded research in American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities. The driving force behind this collection of 24 articles was a 2010 conference that brought together experts and stakeholders from across academic institutions, communities and government to discuss research findings and research opportunities in AI/AN substance abuse research. The conference was hosted by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), in collaboration with the NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research and the National Cancer Institute.
