Hallie Jordan, a 3rd year doctoral student in the lab, recently received a Competitive Graduate Travel Grant from the University of Southern Mississippi Graduate School. The grant will help support her travel to the Association for the Advancement of Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies conference to present her research. Congrats Hallie!
Dr. Madson is a co-investigator on a grant funded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (National Institutes of Health). The project which involves motivational interviewing and telehealth nutrition is a part of the larger Mississippi INBRE program at USM funded for 5 years at about $18,000,000.
Hallie Jordan, a third year doctoral student in the BAR Lab, was first author on a paper accepted for publication in the Journal of Drug Education: Substance Abuse Research and Prevention. The paper was co-authored with Dr. Margo Villarosa-Hurlocker and Asia Ashley (both lab alumni) and Dr. Madson. We found that increased serious harm reduction protective behavioral strategies was associated with less hazardous drinking and fewer alcohol-related negative consequences and that these relationships were strengthened for students reporting higher psychological distress. Nice work Hallie.
