About this grant

This grant increase will provide funds to the Institute for Behavior and Health, Inc., to continue its work on the development of a model to deter substance abuse among youth. Central to the model is a focus on more intentional engagement of pediatric and adolescent physicians and parents as essential partners in identifying risk factors for youth substance abuse and identifying ways to curtail use.
