Trey Andrews will give a talk on his project, “Mediators of Violence Exposure and Substance Use,” Sept. 8 at 1:30 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.

Register for the Zoom link.

The MoVES project is funded by the Rural Drug Addiction Research Center and is focused on delineating the exact pathways between specific substance use and violence-related factors to better understand the complexities of drug use and intelligently design interventions to reduce its harms. In this seminar, Andrews will take a deeper dive into MoVES and discuss his findings.

Andrews is an associate professor with a joint appointment in the Department of Psychology and Institute for Ethnic Studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He has been at Nebraska since 2016 and has co-directed the Minority Health Disparities Initiative since 2020. He focuses on stress-related inequalities and testing ways to improve mental health access, particularly for Latinx populations.

This talk is sponsored by RDAR Center, and it is an installment within their Seminar Series.
