GRANT TARGETS MINORITY YOUTH

The Center for Health Services Research in Primary Care at UC Davis Medical Center received a $1.1 million grant for a three-year joint study with the Health Education Council of Sacramento to reduce substance abuse and HIV infection among minority youth in Sacramento County.

The study, funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, will monitor substance abuse and other risky behaviors, increase prevention efforts in community clinics and organizations, and develop an ongoing prevention program to help youth resist alcohol, tobacco and other drugs, and risky sexual behavior.

The goal is to educate 450 young people between 11 and 14 who are at higher risk for substance abuse and HIV infection, in addition to their parents. Parents will participate in three hours of discussion.
