    Dr. Thomas studies the relationship between response to stress and the risk of developing alcohol problems, and how stress may contribute to relapse in individuals with alcohol dependence. She is committed to helping reduce the stigma of addiction and to promoting treatment seeking through her active education and outreach efforts in the community.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
