About the author (2002)

Jean Kinney, Lecturer in Community and Family Medicine at Dartmouth Medical School, was the Associate Director of the Alcohol Counselor Training Program at Dartmouth conducted between 1972 and 1978. That program that was the impetus for this text. Upon completion of the Alcohol Counselor Training Program, she became the Director Project Cork, a program established to develop and implement a model curriculum for medical student education. At the completion of Project Cork, the Resource Center that was established as part of that effort, was transferred to the Office of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Programs of the State of Vermont's Department of Health. Professor Kinney oversees this Resource Center that continues to serves as a resource for substance abuse and health-care professionals statewide and nationally.
