Alcohol Use, Abuse and Screening
We all probably know someone who drinks more than what seems normal. It may be yourself, a friend, a parent, a partner or even a colleague. But where is the line, and whose business is it to broach the topic? How do you medically screen for alcohol abuse?
Professor Tracy Schroepfer, PhD, MSW, MS from the University of Wisconsin-Madison specializes in issues that affect older adults, especially people of color. In this presentation she will speak specifically about alcohol consumption. There are a lot of societal pressures to drink, and at the same time shame is associated with drinking too much. Also, many adults don’t know that alcohol’s effect on the body changes with age.
