APA Health Disparities Seminar

Is our nation’s federal drug policy misguided? Recorded live via a Google+ Hangout, this APA health disparities seminar featured Columbia University psychologist Carl Hart, PhD. Hart researches the complex interactions between drugs and the neurobiological and environmental factors that affect human behavior and physiology. Drawing on professional and personal experiences in his book “High Price,” Hart takes a hard look at the science of drug addiction and reveals that common beliefs about illegal drugs are far too often not based on empirical evidence.
