Katie Schultz Awarded Grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse

May 14, 2024

Assistant Professor Katie Schultz is a principal investigator on a recently awarded R01 grant, funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. This longitudinal, mixed methods study will examine changes in the social networks of American Indian youth across adolescence and collect community-level social network data to identify optimal timing and strategies for culturally grounded prevention of substance use, suicide and exposure to violence at the micro (individual) and macro (community) levels.  

“I’m excited to continue this work with my colleagues and our community partners to build upon findings from our previous work, the Tribal Adolescent Connections Study,” said Schultz. “This new study will further our understanding of how social networks, a salient feature of American Indian culture, might operate and be harnessed in culturally grounded, preventive interventions.”
