[DIV28SUPER] Comments due to FDA August 8th on proposed deeming rule to extend regulatory authority over tobacco

Dear Colleagues,

 

The Center for Tobacco Free Kids has created this microsite to make it easier for individuals to submit comments regarding FDA’s extension of jurisdiction to various tobacco products.  The comment period closes August 8th.

 

Background:

On April 25, 2014, FDA published a proposed regulation extending its jurisdiction to various “deemed” tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes. If made final, the proposal would subject deemed products to a number of significant regulations that would apply automatically by virtue of a product being “deemed.”2 It also would subject the deemed products to several additional regulations which FDA has discretion to impose, including (1) requirement for a minimum age for sale, (2) health warnings for product packages and advertisements, and (3) prohibition of vending machine sales.  

 

Please also find attached a “key issues” document constructed by Tobacco Free Kids that is relevant to the deeming proposal.

Best,

-geoff

[DIV28SUPER] Division 25 programming at APA

Hi all,

Our Division 28 Program Chair Rich Allen and I thought it would be a good idea to send out the attached program for Division 25 (Behavior Analysis), which many in our division may be interested in.  Note that the program for Division 50 (Addiction) is included within the NIDA/NIAAA brochure that Rich previously sent.

There are several events within Division 25 programming that are related to psychopharmacology, including research on environmental determinants of alcohol consumption, acute effects of drugs on decision making, and analyses of non-drug reinforcers and addictions.

Best,

Matt

Hello Meyer et al.,
 
Brede would like credit card info by August 1.  I'd like to have this sorted, if possible, so that it's not MY credit card info guaranteeing the charge.  I'm sure you do not know if we'll know by then, but we did talk about a back up plan.  Would it make sense to hand this over to the official "backer-upper" for guarantee of the payment (rather than little old me?)
 
Thoughts and opinions on how to proceed are welcome.

[DIV28SUPER] Program brochures for APA 2014

Hello Division 28 members,

Attached to this message you will find two pdfs with programing information for events at APA 2014:

1) Div 28 Program Brochure Final.pdf – This handy one-pager lists all Division 28 programming (sponsored and co-sponsored) at the upcoming 2014 meeting.

2) Alcohol and Drug Addiction Research @ APA 2014 Brochure - Listserv.pdf – This is a brochure put together in collaboration with NIDA, NIAAA, Division 28, and Division 50. While it doesn't contain all Division 28 programming, it does contain more division 50 programming than our Division 28 brochure. It also provides more detail about the presenters, notably the Early Career Investigators Poster Session and Social Hour participants – information that is not found in the APA program.

We think that both documents will be useful to you if plan to attend the convention this year, August 7 – 10, in Washington, D.C.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Sincerely,

Rich Allen

[DIV28SUPER] 2nd Annual Vermont Center on Behavior & Health Conference

Please see attached Call for Posters. PLEASE CIRCULATE:


2nd Annual Behavior Change, Health, and Health Disparities Conference

October 2-3, 2014
Burlington, Vermont


Capitalizing on Behavioral Economics to Address Major Behavior Health Problems

Personal behavior patterns (i.e., lifestyle) increase risk for chronic
disease and premature death. Unhealthy behaviors (e.g., physical
inactivity/unhealthy food choices, tobacco use, prescription opioid
abuse) represent the leading cause of chronic disease and premature
deaths in the U.S. and are a major driver behind spiraling health-care
costs. These risk behaviors are overrepresented among
socioeconomically disadvantaged populations and are major contributors
to the problem of health disparities. Scholars from leading U.S.
universities and medical centers will share their research and
knowledge on how to apply the concepts and methods of behavioral
economics to improve scientific understanding and clinical outcomes
with these highly challenging and costly public health problems in the
areas of obesity, tobacco use, and prescription opioid abuse.

[DIV28SUPER] Post doctoral Training Opportunity, Comorbid SUD & Other Psychiatric Conditions

Please Respond To Ken Winters PhD, Professor, Department of Psychiatry, University of Minnesota



T32 Post Doctoral Training Opportunity at the University of Minnesota

Comorbidity: Substance Use Disorders and Other Psychiatric Conditions

 

A NEW National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) funded Post Doctoral Training Program has been established at the University of Minnesota. This program is a NIDA-funded T32 focused on the comorbidity of substance use disorder (SUD) with psychiatric disorders. The Department of Psychiatry (Medical School) leads the program, collaborating with the Department of Biobehavioral Health and Population Sciences (Medical School) and the Department of Psychology—Clinical Science and Psychopathology Research Program (Graduate Studies).

 

We are dedicated to training exceptional early career scientists from diverse backgrounds who seek to conduct rigorous transdisciplinary scientific inquiry across a broad range of possible emphases, research environments, methods, and areas of focus. Emphasis is on Diagnostics, Intervention, and Prevention. Focus includes, but is not limited to SUD in relation to Anxiety, Trauma, Depression, Neurocognitive, Psychotic, Eating Disorders, and associated medical conditions.

 

A distinct emphasis of the Post Doctoral Training Program is to diversify the biomedical, behavioral, clinical, and social sciences workforce through increased participation of talented individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups; individuals with disabilities; and individuals from economically, socially, culturally, or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds. Ongoing affiliated research programs include specialized focus on adolescents, women's health, and minority and underserved populations including rural, Indigenous/Native Americans, Hmong, and Somali. Our programs are dedicated to working collaboratively with marginalized communities to address health issues. Specialized resources include the Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute, which includes the Office of Translation and Discovery, Clinical Research Services, the Center for Health Equity, and the Office of Community Engagement, along with the Powell Center for Women's Health, Center for Magnetic Resonance Research, Center for Rural Mental Health Studies, and Research for Indigenous Community Health Center (RICH).

 

Trainees will have a mentoring team consisting of a Primary Mentor and Specialty Mentors. Mentor teams will be drawn from the Twin Cities and Duluth campuses, facilitated by frequent cross campus contacts and regular videoconferencing. Trainees will complete didactic work as needed, establish research in collaboration with mentors, engage with trainees in other Residency and Post Doctoral programs, and can be based at either campus. Efforts are directed towards developing transdisciplinary expertise through an intensive program of dedicated scientific mentoring and focused professional development through personalized support and guidance. The second year of this two-year program includes NIH application development/submission.

 

Successful applicants will have MD or PhD degrees, appropriate research experience in medicine, neuroscience, psychology or closely allied disciplines. Candidates should submit a letter of interest (no more than 1 page), CV, list of three references, and PDF's of up to 3 relevant publications if available, as email attachments to: Ken Winters PhD, Professor, Department of Psychiatry winte001@umn.edu

The Mirzayan Fellowship Program Office is pleased to announce that the National Academies is accepting applications for the January 2015 session of the Christine Mirzayan Science and Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship Program. 

The online application is available at: 

http://sites.nationalacademies.org/PGA/policyfellows/index.htm

We encourage you to share this information with qualified individuals.

The Christine Mirzayan Science & Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship Program is designed to engage early career individuals in the analytical processes that inform U.S. science and technology policy.  Fellows obtain the essential skills and knowledge needed to work in science and technology policy at the federal, state, or local levels.  Fellows spend 12 weeks at the National Academies in Washington, DC learning about science and technology policy and the role that scientists and engineers play in advising the nation. Each year, applicants from around the world become part of a National Academies committee, board, or unit.  Each fellow is assigned to a senior staff member who acts as his or her mentor. The mentor provides guidance and ensures that the fellow’s time is focused on substantive projects and activities within the fellow’s assigned unit.  An immersive experience, the program is designed to broaden fellows’ appreciation of employment opportunities outside academia and leave them with both a firm grasp of the important and dynamic role of science and technology in decision-making and a better understanding of the role that they can play in strengthening the science and technology enterprise for the betterment of mankind.
