Event Details

Please join the National Alcohol Beverage Control Association (NABCA) and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) for this webinar.

The differences in alcohol use and related harms between women and men have narrowed over the decades. Young females are now more likely to drink and to report getting drunk than young males. Among adults, alcohol consumption and alcohol-related emergency department visits, hospitalizations and deaths have increased for women than for men.

Recent studies suggest that alcohol is a growing women’s health issue and that women face different risks from alcohol consumption. Because of physiological differences, women reach higher blood alcohol levels than men after each drink. This means their organs are exposed to more alcohol which could potentially result in more severe impairments in brain function and behavior. This could help explain why women are more likely than men to experience memory blackouts, hangovers and to develop certain cancers.

This webinar will explore recent changes in alcohol use by women and examine the potential risks.
