Texas University Awarded $2.5 Million to Study Black Drug Abuse

The University of Houston College of Education will partner with the community for an innovative study that will look at how stress and environmental stressors such as poverty and violence play into the drug use among African-Americans ages 18-25. As part of a National Institute of Health (NIH) 5-year $2.5 million grant, the school will “investigate mechanisms that influence drug-related health disparities in the African-American community,” writes News Medical.
