Dr. Paul Gilbert, assistant professor in the Department of Community & Behavioral Health at the University of Iowa College of Public Health, will talk about disparities related to alcohol use in Iowa. He will begin by differentiating disparities from other differences in health outcomes and will summarize national trends in drinking and substance use treatment utilization. Then he will review the latest data from Iowa, focusing in particular on gender, race/ethnicity, sexual and gender minority populations, and rural differences in drinking and associated harms. As public health is an applied discipline, Dr. Gilbert will devote time to considering the mechanisms responsible for the disparities and possible intervention approaches. Participants are encouraged to come with questions as this will be an interactive presentation.
