James Morton Jr., will present "Thriving Alaska Native Veterans: Translational Research for Health Promotion and Harm Reduction among Military Service Members" at the IAB Life Sciences Seminar on Friday, Oct. 29, 3 p.m. via Zoom. More information is available on the event website.
Morton is research assistant professor in the Center for Alaska Native Health Research, part of the Institute of Arctic Biology.
Understanding how Alaska Native veterans thrive is the focus of a recent grant awarded to Morton. The pilot study is funded by the National Institutes of Health through the Mountain West Clinical and Translational Research Infrastructure Network. This one-year grant supports a community collaboration to better understand the protective and risk factors among Alaska Native veterans in the Fairbanks area.
The work done under this grant will support future efforts to promote mental health and well-being among military service members and veterans living in Alaska. For questions or comments, Morton can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
