Monday, October 29, 2012 : 2:55 PM - 3:15 PM

Thomas Babor, PhD , Department of Community Medicine and Health Care, University of Connecticut Health Center, Farmington, CT
This presentation will use the epidemiologic cascade framework to trace the development of a current epidemic of binge drinking and heavy drinking among young adult men and women in the United Kingdom through government policies, the role of corporations in influencing these policies, and the conduits through which they create an environment that stimulates such drinking. That framework will also be used to locate the target of efficacious policies and to take into account negative and positive intra- or inter-level feedbacks, in order to guide a public health policy strategy.012-->
