UF study of drug users finds people with ADHA started using at younger age, reports T32 predoctoral fellow
The study’s lead author is Eugene Dunne, a third-year doctoral student in clinical and health psychology at UF’s College of Public Health and Health Professions and a predoctoral fellow in the T32 Training Program, funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse as the University of Florida Substance Abuse Training Center in Public Health. This new training program is directed by Dr. Linda Cottler and co-directed by Dr. Sara-Jo Nixon.
Dr. Linda Cottler, Department of Epidemiology Chair, was awarded the 2014 National Center for Responsible Gaming’s (NCRG) Scientific Achievement Award at the group’s annual conference in late September. NCRG noted that this is the first time the organization has honored an educator who has contributed to the field of gambling disorder, calling her “a pivotal figure in the development of the field of gambling disorder.” Among her achievements cited was the mentoring of junior investigators, leading to new categories of grants for early stage investigators. Cottler’s work on the 1981 Epidemiologic Catchment Area Study of mental disorders, one of the first studies to provide considerable evidence of the high rate of co-occurring psychiatric disorders with gambling disorder, was also recognized, along with her role on the National Research Council committee and her service on the NCRG Scientific Advisory Board since 1998, including her role as Chairwoman from 2009-2013.
