Holiday Drinking: Helping Older Adults be Happier and Safer
Presenter: Frederic C. Blow, PhD
Date: December 7, 2022, 12pm- 1:30pm CT
Using alcohol to cope places many older adults at heightened risk for negative consequences, especially for those who are social isolated and lonely. This webinar will highlight the special risks of drinking among older individuals and how these risks are heightened over the holidays. Strategies that promote wellness that do not depend on alcohol consumption will be discussed.
