Spring 2023 Social Science Hour

Let's Talk About Drugs

When it comes to drug use in America, we often turn to the medical experts for answers. However, this is an issue that impacts our entire society.  Social science researchers have been looking at the impact of drug use for decades.  Social sciences are at the forefront of the drug race, providing research and answers to the unending questions that present themselves daily.

  • What are some of the key ways to address drug use in our society?
  • How has social science research helped you better understand the impacts of drug use on the individual, community, and society?
  • Why is this research important to take into consideration during this time?


Join us for our Spring Social Science Hour as we discuss possible answers to these questions from a social science perspective.
