ARG scientists will be in Chicago at the end of October to present at the American Public Health Association (APHA)’s Annual Meeting and Exposition with talks focused on alcohol-related heath issues and outcomes.
Conference highlights include a panel on November 3 when ARG researchers will present new findings on health disparities from the National Alcohol Survey. Beginning at 2:30 pm, Camillia Lui discusses differences in education among heavy drinkers using age-period cohort analysis. She and her colleagues found that alcohol-related disparities by education were widest among younger age groups, they decreased over time and were highest among more recent cohorts.
Thomas K. Greenfield presents results from a study that looked at disparities in alcohol use among racial/ethnic minority groups in the US. He and his colleagues’ research suggests that among people who drink, some groups consumed larger amounts more often than other groups with American Indian/Alaskan Natives and US-born Latinos among the highest.
At 3:10 pm, William C. Kerr discusses the risk of injury related to the frequency of heaving drinking among different racial/ethnic groups. Alcohol-related injury is also discussed in Cheryl Cherpitel‘s presentation at 3:30 pm when she looks at the association of alcohol-related injury by race/ethnicity. alcohol consumption and heavy drinking by volume and drinking pattern.
