CURE awarded travel grants to 2 Rutgers graduate students —
Madison Nilsen, a second year graduate student in the Criminal Justice Master’s Program at Rutgers University in Camden. (She is interested in youth risk behavior and juvenile justice.)
The Criminal Justice students participated in the American Society of Criminology in San Francisco, California in November. They presented findings from the EPIC Camden study in a paper that they co-presented, entitled, “It’s just a free-for-all out here.” Contextualizing Adolescent Strategies to Acquire Alcohol. They have been a vital part of the research team (collecting data, etc) and co-authoring papers with CURE affiliated scholars Stacia Gilliard Matthews and Robin Stevens.
