CADCA Announces Registration Open for Research Into Action Webinar Series

Are you interested in learning about the effects of cannabis on neurological development? What do MRIs show about structural changes in the brain caused by marijuana use? Prominent scholars are studying the issue and have new research that can help your coalition understand marijuana’s harmful effects. CADCA’s National Coalition Institute is pleased to announce the next edition in a series of a new no-cost, bi-monthly webinars entitled “Conversations: Putting Research Into Action.”

This is the next edition in the Research Into Action webinar series in which CADCA will host a live conversation with researchers from around the world on issues of interest to community coalitions. We are proud to announce our next webinar will feature Dr. Ty Brumback from the University of California, San Diego.

Dr. Brumback will be presenting his findings regarding the effects of marijuana use on brain structure and function. His work includes neuroimaging findings from a neurodevelopmental perspective. CADCA’s Evaluation and Research team will ask questions about the article’s implications for coalition work and will provide an opportunity for webinar participants to ask questions as well.

We invite you to join us for this webinar Aug. 25 from 2:30-3:30 p.m. EST. Come join us in a real-time conversation hosted by Robert Busch of CADCA’s Evaluation and Research team to hear about the key findings and implications of this new research and its relevance for community health coalitions. Participants can register now.

The deadline for registering is Aug. 23. Information for how to join the webinar will be emailed to registered attendees. Full recordings of each webinar will be made available on following each event. If you have any questions regarding this webinar or other Research Into Action questions, please feel free to contact Robert Busch at We hope you will join us for this exciting opportunity and keep an eye out for our next webinar in this series.
