Abstract
Dr. Adey Nyamathi is a highly respected researcher, academician, and a distinguished professor. Dr. Nyamathi has been the principal investigator in nine NIH-funded RO1s and other NIH grants funded by NIDA, NIAAA, NICHD, and NIAID. During her three decades of continuous RO1 NIH funding as a Principle Investigator, Dr. Nyamathi has conducted descriptive and randomized trials among vulnerable populations, including homeless, drug-addicted and incarcerated persons, gay/bisexual youth and men at risk for HIV/AIDS, and rural women living with AIDS in India. In her current NIH-funded study study with offenders, Dr. Nyamathi’s team is successfully working with women recently exiting jails and prisons to ensure they have access to psychological empowerment, health care services and life skills education needed to halt repeat drug use and incarcerations.
