[Webinar]: Catching Up On Cannabis Science: Public Health & Prevention Opportunities (HHS Region 1)
February 25, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
ABOUT THE LEARNING SESSION
Legalization of cannabis has brought changing products and methods of use, yet research and science has changed as well. In this presentation, we will review what the science says about cannabis (particularly findings relevant to prevention professionals), consider emerging and new research related to effects related to cognitive functioning, driving, sleep quality, mental health, and addiction. Opportunities for prevention and intervention will be considered.
Dr. Jason Kilmer is an Associate Professor in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Washington (UW), and serves as an investigator on several studies evaluating prevention and intervention efforts for alcohol, cannabis/marijuana, and other drug use by college students. In addition to research and teaching, he has worked extensively with college students, student groups, and student affairs teams around alcohol and other drug prevention programming and presentations throughout his career (including student athletes, fraternity and sorority members, residence life, and first-year students) both at UW and for 118 other colleges across the nation.
