Drugs and Justice
On Friday, January 31, MADP will host the annual MLK Commemoration Brunch in PLV featuring neuroscientist Carl Hart, PhD, on how drug policies cause injustice.
The Office of Multicultural Affairs and Diversity Programs presents the 14th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemoration Brunch on Friday, January 31, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Gottesman Room on the Westchester Campus. Keynote speaker Carl Hart, PhD, groundbreaking neuroscientist and author, will discuss how drug policies cause injustice. In his book High Price: A Neuroscientist's Journey of Self-Discovery That Challenges Everything You Know About Drugs and Society, Hart shares his story of growing up in a tough neighborhood and how it led him to his pioneering work in drug addiction.
Currently, Hart is an Associate Professor of Psychology in both the Departments of Psychiatry and Psychology at Columbia University, and Director of the Residential Studies and Methamphetamine Research Laboratories at the New York State Psychiatric Institute. A major focus of Hart’s research is to understand complex interactions between drugs of abuse and the neurobiology and environmental factors that mediate human behavior and physiology.
He is the author or co-author of dozens of peer-reviewed scientific articles in the area of neuropsychopharmacology, co-author of the textbook Drugs, Society, and Human Behavior, and a member of an NIH review group. Hart was recently elected to Fellow status by the American Psychological Association (Division 28) for his outstanding contribution to the field of psychology, specifically psychopharmacology and substance abuse.
