Dr. Stokes is currently working on the Early Family Prevention of Adolescent Alcohol, Drug Use and Psychopathology project through a NIDA-funded diversity supplement. Using data from that project, Dr. Stokes plans to explore neighborhood characteristics associated with the development of adolescent alcohol and drug use and work with members of the research team to conduct focus groups to assess adolescent perceptions of barriers to and facilitators of alcohol and drug use. Prior to working at ORI, Dr. Stokes worked for two years as a research associate at Oregon State University’s College of Public Health and Human Sciences where she co-authored a paper on power-related correlates of condom use in a sample of young adult Latinos. Research interests include: (a) health disparities in HIV prevention, (b) co-occurring problems such as violence, trauma, and risk-taking behaviors, (c) minority health disparities, and (d) race, ethnicity and culture in mental health research.
