Dr. Dewey is the Director of Laboratory for Behavioral & Molecular Neuroimaging at North Shore LIJ’s Feinstein Institute for Medical Research. The seminar will discuss how drugs work, how they affect the mind and body, why people take them, and the effects of the most abused substances.
“Awareness and knowledge are the first steps in eventually winning this battle,” said Legislator Rhoads. “With a better understanding of how drugs work and why people abuse them, we can help prevent our loved ones from facing tragedy.”
