Dr. Kenneth Gruber

Dr. Kenneth Gruber (Center for Youth, Family and Community Partnerships) received new funding from The Foundation for a Healthy High Point for the project “Determination of the Prevalence, Incidence and Impact of Behavioral Health and Substance Abuse Issues in Greater High Point.” The research team consists of Dr. Kenneth Gruber, Dr. Stephen Sills, and Dr. Erika Payton. They will help the Foundation for Healthy High Point identify the most impactful behavioral health issues affecting Greater High Point. Individuals suffering from behavioral issues such as depression, anxiety, and drug and alcohol abuse, are often overwhelmed by the stresses and strains of daily life, the abstract states. “As part of the identification process we will seek from local and county sources patient count data and other information to develop a current count report of the prevalence (the proportion of cases in the population that have the condition) and the incidence (the number of new cases with the condition) that can be used as a baseline for directing interventions to reduce the prevalence, incidence, and impact of these issues. The final step of the project will be presentation of a findings report and recommendations to the Foundation for its review.”
