The spring Advanced Alcohol Research Seminar, offered from January to May 2015, operates through UC Berkeley and presents research and lectures on epidemiology, prevention and intervention, and theory and methodology related to alcohol and potentially other drugs. This seminar, taught and facilitated by Sarah Zemore, PhD, and co-led by Drs. Lee Kaskutas and Cheryl Cherpitel, features presentations by renowned scientists in the field of alcohol research both inside and outside ARG. The current seminar series includes talks on topics such as cannabis as a possible substitution for alcohol, the impact of discrimination on drinking, and how socioeconomic status affects drinking patterns and problems.
