National Institute on Drug Abuse National Drugs Facts Week
With a doctorate from the University of Vermont, the director and chief of Warrior Research Institute, Suzy Gulliver, Ph.D., has earned distinction throughout her professional and her academic career. Dr. Suzy Gulliver routinely receives funding as a principal investigator (PI), as a co-PI, and as a mentor from such sources as the National Institute on Drug Abuse, which serves the public with drug education programs.
In early 2014, for the fourth year, in its effort to raise awareness about drug abuse, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, a part of the National Institutes of Health, observed National Drug Facts Week (NDFW). During the week in late January and early February, schools and community organizations across the United States hosted events to bring the NDFW motto to life, to shatter the myths surrounding drugs believed by teenagers and perpetuated by peers and the media.
Scientists attended school and athletic events and other gatherings to start informed dialogue about a diverse spectrum of drugs, including marijuana, illicit drugs, prescription drugs, and tobacco. Speakers educated adolescents about the effects of drugs on the brain, on the body, and on behavior. Representatives from the Food and Drug Administration who specialize in tobacco, experts on alcohol abuse, and representatives from the National Institute of Mental Health also attended and answered questions posed by students from 100 high schools around the nation.
