Webinar: Trends in alcohol consumption, policy & the pandemic

Previous national crises have led to increased alcohol consumption, a

concerning trend given evidence that drinking to cope with stress is

associated with negative outcomes, including a higher risk for developing an

alcohol use disorder. Please join us for a webinar about the potential longterm

impact of this crisis on alcohol-related harms in the United States.

During this webinar, experts will review all available data on sales and

alcohol consumption to assess whether alcohol use has increased during the

COVID-19 pandemic, discuss alcohol policies and their impact on health

behavior and consider the potential implications of recent alcohol policy

changes made during the COVID-19 pandemic.
