Alcohol and Tobacco Use among Older Adults in the US: A Lifecourse Perspective
Pia Mauro, PhD
Older adults bear the brunt of negative alcohol- and tobacco-related health consequences and mortality, yet they are often left behind in substance use research. This presentation will describe the epidemiology of alcohol and tobacco use in older adulthood, estimate longitudinal changes in use in the context of the COVID19 pandemic, and discuss opportunities to engage people in services when clinically indicated.
