ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Kara S. Bagot, MD is a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist and Assistant Professor at the University of California, San Diego in the Department of Psychiatry. She received her psychiatric and clinical research training at Yale University Child Study Center. Dr. Bagot is a clinician and researcher with expertise in treatment interventions for adolescent Substance Use Disorders, and has authored and presented several manuscripts in this field. Her research focuses on understanding neurophysiological and behavioral changes related to initiation and maintenance of substance abuse in adolescents, evolving trends in substance use and related behaviors among adolescents, and ways in which to harness these trends for interventional use. This includes investigating the changing ways in which adolescents access, obtain information about, and use substances, the use of in-person and online peer-to-peer social networks to propagate information and engage in high risk behaviors, and high-yield settings in which to intervene.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the standards of the Academy of General Dentistry Program Approval for Continuing Education (PACE) through program approval of the College of Diplomates of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. COD is approved for awarding FAGD/MAGD credit.
