Archived Seminar: Effect of Contemporary Societal Exposures on Adolescent Behavioral Health
Pioneers in Biomedical Research Seminar presented by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC
Instagram, legal cannabis, e-cigarettes, and the proposal for ‘a wall along the U.S.-Mexico Border.’ These are examples of historically unprecedented issues which the current generation of youth are routinely exposed to. Dr. Leventhal's talk will review the results of observational studies addressing the prevalence, risk factors, and behavioral health consequences of the following contemporary exposures: (1) modern digital media use, (2) use of e-cigarettes and other tobacco products, (3) use of novel cannabis products, and (4) perceptions that discrimination in greater society is increasing.
This is a free event hosted by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute and co-sponsored by the institute's Addiction Recovery Research Center and the Center for Transformative Research on Health Behaviors. The Pioneers in Biomedical Research Seminar Series, which runs annually from September to May, has featured leading biomedical researchers from throughout the country since the program began in 2012. Presented virtually via Zoom primarily for research and clinical audiences, the lectures are also open to all members of the Virginia Tech community including graduate students, undergraduates, faculty, and staff, as well as the public.
