About NIDA

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) convenes racial/ethnic minority workgroups comprising experts in the areas of substance abuse and addiction or health concerns of minority populations. The African American Researchers and Scholars Work Group provides recommendations to NIDA on research and research development needs of the African American community that will lead to effective prevention and treatment approaches. This workgroup's most recent activities, a Mini Med School and Addiction Research Training Institute, have centered on mentoring and training underrepresented minorities and others interested in substance abuse and addiction in the African American community.
