Studying Stressors on Black Men

January 24, 2019

Professor of Applied Social Psychology Lisa Bowleg began a new study in 2018 to reduce drug use and poor health outcomes in black men. The project earned a $3.7 million grant from the Department of Health and Human Services, the National Institutes of Health and the National Institutes on Drug Abuse. The study will examine the way stressors affect black men across a variety of demographics, including sexual identity and socioeconomic position.
