Dr. Vennar received her PhD in Clinical Psychology from the University of New Mexico. She is an Assistant Professor and Research Assistant Professor. Her research focuses on improving the alarming substance use related health disparities for American Indian/Alaska Natives while balancing the focus on cultural strengths and high rates of abstinence from substances.
