Virtual 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 Fralin Biomedical Research Institute Pioneers in Biomedical Research Program offers the expertise of a range of scientists who are exploring frontiers in biomedical research. These seminars are open to Virginia Tech and Carilion Clinic faculty, students, and staff.
