Addiction and Women’s Health: Advancing Research and Evaluation



VCU

Addiction and Women’s Health: Advancing Research and Evaluation was established in 2007 at Virginia Commonwealth University under the direction of Dace Svikis, Ph.D. AWHARE serves as a bridge between VCU’s Institute for Women’s Health and its Institute for Drug and Alcohol Studies, creating synergy among senior faculty members and mentoring an interdisciplinary team of junior faculty members and students.
