Virtual Event: Alcohol Use Disorder: Our Nation’s Hidden Epidemic Webinar
Our nation has a hidden epidemic that requires our immediate attention – alcohol use disorder (AUD) and its far-reaching effects on individuals, families and communities.
Research shows that AUD has increased dramatically during the pandemic and that adults ages 25-44 experienced the steepest upward trend in mortality. How can we stop this surge?
Explore the problem – and solutions – during “Alcohol Use Disorder: Our Nation’s Hidden Epidemic,” a new “Wellbeing Wednesdays” episode.
World-renowned expert on alcohol and stress George F. Koob, Ph.D., director of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, will join us to:
• Discuss the current state of AUD nationwide.
• Explore how COVID-19 is contributing to the surge.
• Illustrate the impact of AUD on community health.
• Introduce solutions for addressing AUD in America.
