The Alcohol, Drugs, and Tobacco Study Group is happy to announce the winner of our 2019 Graduate Student Paper Prize: Sarah Brothers!
Sarah is currently a Ph.D. student at Yale University. Her award-winning paper, A Good “Doctor” is Hard to Find: Assessing Uncredentialed Expertise in Assisted Injection, examines how laypeople assess uncredentialed expertise in the high-risk practice of assisted injection (when one person injects another with illicit drugs) in San Francisco, California.
The ADTSG Graduate Student Paper Prize is an annual award that recognizes the best graduate student paper in the anthropology of alcohol, drugs, tobacco, or other psychoactive substance use. Please join us in congratulating Sarah on her excellent work and contribution to our field!
I am very proud to call this wonderful person my friend. I’ve always known her to be a big fish in a small pond, and one of the most dynamic, eclectic, intelligent, and creative people I have had the pleasure to know. I’m thrilled for her latest accomplishment, but in no way surprised. Her intellect is matched only by her generosity and compassion. And her zest for life is eclipsed only by her willingness to share her joy with others. Congrats, Sarah! And Raleigh raises a toast to your success!
