Welcome back to Why Science! In this episode we speak with COBE Director Dr. Danielle Dick about her career studying substance use and mental health outcomes in adolescents, the creation of Spit for Science and how that project relates to COBE.

Why Science is a podcast about behavioral and emotional health research at Virginia Commonwealth University. During each episode we welcome a new guest from VCU to discuss their work ranging from substance use to stress, mindfulness to empathy and everything in between.
