OUR MISSION

 

The mission of the AEP is to conduct advanced research to discover effective community and policy interventions to reduce alcohol-related social and health problems. Recent studies have focused on:

  • effects of alcohol compliance checks
  • illegal alcohol sales at community festivals
  • community organizing efforts
  • community prevention trials
  • alcohol-involved traffic crashes
  • training of alcohol outlet managers and servers
  • natural experiments with changes in state and local alcohol policies
  • effects of macroeconomic conditions on drinking rates
  • alcohol sales to youth and obviously intoxicated patrons
  • density of alcohol establishments
  • malt liquor availability and promotion
