Christina Lee receives R01 award from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, National Institutes of Health

Congratulations to Christina Lee on her recent R01 award from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, National Institutes of Health.

The goals of the five-year grant “A Randomized Clinical Trial of Culturally Tailored Motivational Interviewing” are to compare the efficacy of Motivational Interviewing (MI) tailored to social stressors and translated (Spanish) to usual MI. The public health impact of this project, done in collaboration with the South End Community Health Center and the Boston Public Health Commission, is a program of early screening and brief intervention to minimize the burden of substance use related illness and negative social consequences that disproportionately affect Latino communities.
