Posted on: Aug. 26, 2019

Associate Professor Aesoon Park is using a grant from the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) to study developmental and proximal sleep-alcohol associations across diverse racial groups of youth. “We examine risk pathways involving social adversity exposures and stress-dysregulation in these associations over time,” says Park, who specilaizes in high-risk health behavior, with emphasis on alcohol use and misuse. The project's co-investigators are Syracuse professors Stephen Maisto and Les Gellis and Yale professor Lisa Fucito.
