Additionally, the Center for Indigenous Health Research team presented information on two research studies, the TCU Alcohol, Drugs and Mental Health Epidemiologic Behavioral Wellness Study and the TCU Behavioral Health Adaptation of an Evidence-Based Intervention Study to the AIHEC board and TCU presidents during the executive meetings. Both of these studies will be launched in fall of 2014. As part of the TCU BASICS Intervention study, the team also conducted a focus group with students to gather feedback on the materials and content of the proposed study. Several of the team members stayed for the student meetings to talk with students, faculty and administration about the upcoming studies and how it might benefit their TCU.Billings_MT_Downtown
