NIDA-AACAP Resident Training Award in Substance Use Disorders, supported by the National Institute of Drug Abuse, Presented to Alison Duncan, MD
Washington, DC, January 26, 2017 – The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) is pleased to announce Alison Duncan, MD, as a recipient of the 2016-2017 NIDA-AACAP Resident Training Award in Substance Use Disorders, supported by the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA).
The NIDA-AACAP Resident Training Award in Substance Use Disorders was established in 2012. It seeks to support the development of expertise in substance use disorders (SUD) through completion of a mentored experience and project that utilizes existing evidence-based treatment science. For early investigators, obtaining funding for training and mentored experiences is critical, but it is also the most difficult to secure. The NIDA-AACAP Resident Training Award provides up to one year of support to general and child and adolescent psychiatry residents to support training in dissemination of research. Through support from this program, the award recipients will engage in a mentored opportunity to learn about key areas of SUD and SUD treatment strategies through systematic literature review, attendance at conferences and workshops, and interaction with leading experts in the field.
Dr. Duncan will be recognized at AACAP’s 64th Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, October 23-28, 2017.
For more information on this award, please contact Samantha Phillips, Communications Coordinator, at 202.966.7300, ext. 154 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
