Pre-meeting Workshops on Gender and Addictions
We will complete initial scholarly and integrative informatics activities and engage in four one-day workshops on "Sex Differences, Gender, and Addictions." The goals are: (1) advance knowledge related to gender and addictions; (2) identify existing bodies of knowledge about sex differences and gender in relation to addictions as well as gaps in knowledge and important research opportunities; (3) create strategies to increase attention to sex differences and gender in addiction research, treatment, and policy; (4) develop a theoretical and integrative informatics framework for research; (5) study the process of transdisciplinary development of ideas and concepts surrounding this topic.
An interdisciplinary graduate course will be offered in Fall 2013 to examine gender and addiction.
