Visiting scholar Dr Stéphanie Baggio aims to provide evidence in the identification of vulnerable groups of youths and the understanding of comorbidity of substance use disorders. 15 Feb 2018
Preventing substance use among young people is major health concern in public health research because substance use has several long-lasting detrimental consequences covering a large range of life aspects. It is crucial to understand how and why adolescents start to use substances, how they progress through the drug course, and the correlates of substance use.

Her research interests focus on human vulnerability and include behavioral addictions, substance use and health disparities.
