NDRI researcher rewarded for positive action on alcohol

Dr Tina Lam’s ground-breaking research on alcohol and other drug use at school leaver celebrations in Western Australia was recognised at WA’s first Action on Alcohol Awards, organised by the McCusker Centre for Action on Alcohol and Youth (MCAAY). The awards recognise work done across the state to reduce alcohol harm in young people and Tina was joint winner in the Community in Action – Individual category.

Dr Lam was also recently awarded a three-year Healthway (Western Australian Health Promotion Foundation) Early Career Research Fellowship, enabling her to continue her research with alcohol, drugs and young people. She is currently the national coordinator for the ‘Young Australians Alcohol Reporting System' and the state coordinator for the ‘Client Pathways through Treatment’ (Pathways) project.
