Dr. Michael E. Young, Associate Dean for Research and Director for Nursing Research, College of Nursing.
"I have authored or co-authored more than 300 publications including published, articles, abstracts and reviews, and have presented more than 250 papers at national and international conferences. Most of my work has been in adolescent health or in sexuality related issues. I have co-authored award winning curricula concerned with both adolescent sexuality and drug education. I have conducted training workshops in more than 30 states and several other countries. I have served as an outside evaluator on projects from the east coast to Alaska, with projects involving public schools, medical schools, police departments, and other community agencies. I have given testimony before state legislatures and gave a deposition on a case (with U.S. Justice and ACLU) that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court."
