Event Series

Alcohol and Cancer

Alcohol use contributes to adverse outcomes among cancer survivors, but our understanding of the impact of alcohol use and potentially effective interventions for cancer survivors is limited. To highlight gaps and stimulate research, three speakers will discuss the epidemiology of alcohol use, alcohol-related complications, and interventions to address use in cancer survivors.

The webinar aims to increase awareness and promote interest in research on alcohol use among cancer survivors. This webinar is the second in a series highlighting the current understanding of and issues in the relationship between alcohol use and cancer control.
