The overall objective of the Research Translation/Information Dissemination Component of The Scripps Research Institute Alcohol Research Center (TSRI ARC) is to advance NIAAA’s mission to translate and disseminate scientific research findings to researchers, healthcare professionals, policy makers, and the general public. The main goals of the Research Translation/Information Dissemination Component are to (1) develop and evaluate an education program to the high risk Mexican American minority and EuroAmerican communities in San Diego greatly in need of tools to combat underage drinking and alcohol use disorders in their communities and (2) expand the dissemination of knowledge about the scientific findings of the TSRI ARC and their translation to clinical alcohol diagnosis, treatment, and prevention to students, scientific and medical professionals and trainees, and the lay public.
