Dr. Margo Hurlodker, University of New Mexico, will present Addressing At-Risk Substance Use via Individual and Systemic Approaches


Excessive substance use is a major risk factor for many chronic diseases in the United States. Identifying individuals who are more vulnerable to excessive substance use and working with community-based agencies to prevent harm related to substance use can aid in reducing the high rates of chronic diseases and improving healthcare. This talk will focus on the individual- and system-level research being conducted by my lab to (a) identify and prevent harm to individuals who engage in excessive substance use, and (b) improve how services are delivered to individuals seeking treatment for substance use disorders.


Margo is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at UNM. Before joining UNM she completed her PhD in counseling psychology at the University of Southern Mississippi, and her postdoctoral training at the Center on Alcohol, Substance use, And Addictions (CASAA) at the UNM. Margo’s research broadly aims to promote health behavior change and improve healthcare using prevention and implementation science.
