Dr. Stephanie Staras invited to participate in a workshop for NIAAA!

Congratulations to Dr. Stephanie Staras, who will be participating in a two-day workshop for the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA). The workshop will focus on identifying components involved in drinking-related HIV sexual risk behavior that might be useful components of an in-the-moment behavioral preventive intervention. NIAAA organized this workshop—scheduled for October 17th-18th in Bethesda, Maryland—with the hopes of bringing together leading experts the broad range of methodological and prevention approaches in this field. Dr. Staras’ research program focuses on improving the understanding of the interactions between alcohol use, partner selection, and HIV/STD risk in order to improve prevention efforts.
