Description

Philadelphia Public Health Grand Rounds: Alcohol, Violence, and Public Health in Philadelphia

TOPIC:
Alcohol, Violence, and Public Health in Philadelphia


ABOUT THE EVENT:

Excessive alcohol use causes substantial negative health impacts. In addition, alcohol sales may also adversely affect public health and community wellbeing. This session will explore the intertwined nature of alcohol use and violence. The location and characteristics of alcohol outlets can have significant impact on neighborhood violence rates, and there are close links between alcohol use, firearm homicide, and suicide. Healthcare providers and public health professionals may have opportunities to reduce violence in a community through interventions that target alcohol.
