Congratulations, Drs. Liza Suarez and Jaleel Abdul-Adil (Institute for Juvenile Research – IJR) on the renewal of their Urban Youth Trauma Center (UYTC) and the SPARKS program on Pediatric Stress and Anxiety Disorders

These grants are supported by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) which is part of the Department of Health and Human Services.

These federally funded programs are germane to the needs of the urban community we serve in Chicago and consistent with the goals and objectives of College of Medicine and the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Drs. Liza Suarez and Jaleel Abdul-Adil, Co-Directors of the Urban Youth Trauma Center, were just awarded two Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration grants to continue their work as part of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network. The Urban Youth Trauma Center and Pediatric Stress and Anxiety Disorder Clinic will have a $1 million annual operating budget as Drs. Suarez and Abdul-Adil will expand on their training and consultation activities to now provide direct services through the Colbeth Clinic. More information can be found at Senator Dick Durbin’s press release.

Drs. Liza Suarez and Jaleel Abdul-Adil were noted for their success and team work.
