IBRO-AMECA Workshop: Impact of Trauma and Life Adversity on Addiction and Mental Health Comorbidity
May 3, 2018 - May 6, 2018
This workshop will build on a successful and well-received collaboration with the AMECA conference. AMECA will provide our workshop attendees a unique regional opportunity to learn about advances in substance use and mental health research in relation to wars and violence and to examine gender differences in the impact of war and trauma. Attendees will benefit from the extensive network of AMECA in the region. The conference will include regional and international speakers. The AMECA mission fits well with IBRO’s goals, which include fostering neuroscience research in Africa and addressing priorities related to brain health. Both IBRO and AMECA facilitate communication and network opportunities for junior scientists in Africa with mentors and peers from around the globe.
