Communication Approaches for Increasing Awareness of the Link Between Alcohol and Cancer

February 9 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Communication Approaches for Increasing Awareness of the Link Between Alcohol and Cancer

Event Type: Webinar
Date: February 9,‌ 2022
Time: 11:00 PM – 12:00 PM CST

 

Alcohol is a well-established human carcinogen, but widespread awareness of this fact remains low. Significant research gaps across the cancer control continuum remain, especially about how to effectively increase awareness and limit alcohol consumption.

In this webinar, experts will address the lack of awareness of the link between alcohol and cancer with a specific focus on communication challenges of modest risk ratios, exposures with mixed effects on health outcomes, and the evolving nature of science with its incumbent uncertainties. Presenters will also discuss communication strategies based on novel research and lessons learned from the tobacco control field.

This webinar kicks off a 2022 quarterly series on alcohol and cancer. The webinar series builds on a 2020 NCI workshop and a recent paper addressing alcohol and cancer to further explore research concerning alcohol as a target for cancer prevention and control. Future topics include co-use of alcohol and other substances, alcohol use in cancer patients and survivors, and alcohol-related policies.
