Women & Alcohol: What does stress have to do with it?
November 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join us on Wednesday, November 15th for the #VCBHLectureSeries as we welcome Sherry McKee, PhD, Director, Yale Behavioral Pharmacology Laboratory. Dr. McKee will present “Women & Alcohol: What does stress have to do with it?”
Dr. McKee directs a translational program of research focused on treatment development for addictive disorders, with an emphasis on women and more recently criminal justice populations. Her work spans clinical trials, behavioral pharmacology, survey research, and epidemiological research to uncover mechanisms underlying poor outcomes and to translate these finding into improved interventions. She also leads a federally funded partnership between Yale University, the of Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, and the State of Connecticut Department of Correction, to develop and implement an integrated system of addiction care for adults returning to their communities following incarceration.
The VCBH Monthly Lecture Series was originally created as an in-person series designed as a way to interact and engage with top researchers in the intersectional fields we often work with at VCBH including behavior change, addiction, chronic disease, and health disparities for people who are at increased risk. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, the VCBH made remote viewing available for the lecture series.
