Sycarah Fisher, an assistant professor and graduate coordinator in the Mary Frances Early College of Education’s department of educational psychology, was selected as a content expert on school-based substance use interventions for the U.S. Department of Education Readiness and Emergency Management for Schools Technical Assistance (REMS TA) Center.
As a content expert for REMS TA Center, Fisher will provide content expertise for national trainings around school substance use interventions for the center. Trainings support state departments of education and local districts across the nation.
“Being selected as a content expert on school-based substance use interventions on a national level means that the work that I do can have broader reach and impact,” she said. “Being able to support states and school districts across the country in their efforts to address adolescent substance use is great!”
The REMS TA Center supports state departments of education in emergency response and management. In Fisher’s area of expertise, she will support their response to addiction and opioid overdoses in schools.
Previously, Fisher participated in two national presentations with the REMS TA Center on school-based substance use interventions.
