AAP Seeks Participants for Study about Teen Marijuana and Media Use

The AAP Julius B. Richmond Center of Excellence is seeking primary care pediatric clinicians to participate in a research study to develop and test a primary care intervention for adolescent marijuana use. Clinicians will be trained in a screening and brief counseling intervention for marijuana or media use and asked to enroll up to 100 adolescents ages 13-18 during well or non-urgent sick visits. Teen follow-up phone surveys will be done by research staff.

Information gained from this study will inform the development of a future large-scale trial of primary care counseling to reduce adolescent marijuana use. Your involvement in this study on behalf of our Chapter and our state would add an invaluable and critical contribution to this important work!
