POWER SESSION: NIAAA: Giving You Information and Tools for Addressing Alcohol Problems in Your Communities / Presentation of National Leadership Award to NIAAA

Tuesday, 02/05/2019
1:45 PM
3:00 PM
Chesapeake A-C


Through a comprehensive multidisciplinary research program, NIAAA has been at the forefront of cutting-edge alcohol science for almost 50 years. Thanks largely to the efforts of NIAAA-supported researchers, important strides have been made in alcohol prevention and treatment—more life-saving tools are available today than ever before, and recent decades have seen a decline in underage drinking; however, more work is needed. As science advances and technology evolves, NIAAA continues to play an important role in supporting innovative alcohol research discoveries for diagnosis, prevention and treatment of alcohol use disorder and other alcohol-related problems. In this Power Session, NIAAA Director George Koob, Ph.D., will provide an overview of the state of alcohol research, share the valuable prevention and treatment information that NIAAA has available for coalitions, and highlight exciting new products coming soon. Dr. Koob will also be available to answer questions.

The National Leadership Award will be presented to NIAAA during this session, as accepted by Dr. George Koob. 

Learning Objectives

At the end of this session, participants will be able to learn about the mission of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), identify important information about alcohol prevention and treatment, and learn about new NIAAA products that are coming in the future.
