After four years of service to our group as ADTSG chair, it is finally time to hand off the torch. I am so proud of the things we have accomplished during this time including the launch of our new website and twitter, four student paper prizes, and over a dozen conference panels. All of this could not have been possible without the help of our incredible members. I would like to also give special thanks to my vice-chair, Roland Moore, as well as Juliet Lee, Kristen Ogilvie, and Gil Quintero for their service and mentorship.
Moving forward, we are excited to welcome Shana Harris who will be taking over as ADTSG chair this year. Shana has been an active and contributing member of ADTSG for many years and I have no doubt she will do a stand-up job in this position. Here are a few words from her:
“I think I speak for the group when I say that I am sad to see Taz step down as the Chair of the Alcohol, Drugs, and Tobacco Study Group after four years of excellent work. Although Taz will no longer be leading the group, I am excited and honored to be taking over the Chair position in the coming year. I look forward to working with all of you to continue making ADTSG a productive, supportive community of scholars.All the best,Shana”
I encourage each of you to reach out to Shana at email@example.com with any questions or words of support as she takes on this exciting role. Thanks again and have a wonderful spring semester!
