National Institute on Drug Abuse Director Nora Volkow Speaks about the Dangers of Narcotics on Azteca America's Political Forum 'Issues: Caras y Voces'
Date:12/11/2007

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Azteca America, the fastest-growing Hispanic television network in the United States, is proud to have hosted National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) Director Nora Volkow on this Monday's broadcast of "Issues: Caras y Voces", a political forum hosted by veteran Latino journalist Armando Guzman.

Dr. Volkow, who has been the NIDA director since 2003, is a pioneer in demonstrating that drug addiction is a disease of the human brain. As a research psychiatrist and scientist, she has used brain imaging to investigate the toxic effects of drugs and their addictive properties.

During the segment, Dr. Volkow presented a computer enhanced video showing the harmful effects of cocaine on the brain due to the rapid dialation and constriction of blood vessels.

Dr. Volkow was born in Mexico, and earned her medical degree from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in Mexico City, where she received the Premio Robins award for best medical student of her class. Her psychiatric residency was at New York University, where she earned the Laughlin Fellowship Award as one of the 10 Outstanding Psychiatric Residents in the USA. She was recently named one of 20 people to watch by Newsweek magazine in its "Who's Next in 2007" special report.

"Issues: Caras y Voces" features top leaders that impact the Hispanic community through one-on-one interviews conducted by Armando Guzman. Covering the White House and the Capitol for almost two decades, Mr. Guzman is one of the most respected correspondents in Washington. The interview forum airs every Monday evening during Noticiero Azteca America, the network news broadcast of Azteca America.

Past guests of "Issues: Caras y Voces" include: New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL), Congressman Xavier Becerra (D-CA), Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano, Congressman Jose E. Serrano (D-NY) and Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ).
