Shannon Glenn is a third-year doctoral student in the Department of Biobehavioral Health and a Prevention and Methodology Training (PAMT) predoctoral fellow. She is working with Robert Turrisi, professor of biobehavioral health, and Michael Russell, assistant professor biobehavioral health. Her research program focuses on the etiology of alcohol-related consequences (ARCs) and brief intervention efforts to reduce ARCs among emerging adults (ages 17-22).
Shannon’s etiological research examines early indicators of ARCs, transitions from risky drinking to dependency, and specific timepoints where emerging adults would benefit from additional prevention efforts. Her prevention research focuses on the development or adaption, implementation, and evaluation of brief, evidence-based interventions (e.g., 15-20 minutes via Zoom, phone app, or web).
Shannon received her B.A. in communication and sociology in 2018 and her M.P.H. in social and behavioral health sciences in 2020 from Rutgers University.
The Prevention and Methodology Training (PAMT) program, funded by a T32 grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, trains predoctoral and postdoctoral researchers in the integration of prevention science and statistical methodology for the behavioral sciences.
