The National Institutes of Health (National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism) awarded CWRU and MetroHealth Medical Center $1.9M in support of Dr. Dawson`s project entitled “Alcohol Reduction in Medical Illnesses: HCV as Prototype” through 2007. This grant will explore the use of alcohol among nondependent patients who have medical illnesses or are on medications that generally preclude the use of alcohol. A questionnaire-based instrument will be developed and tested that will seek to predict the risk of continued alcohol use in medical situations where clinicians generally advise against continued alcohol use. The project will study alcohol use among nondependent patients with Hepatitis C as a prototypical example. To find out more about the study, click here
