Alcohol, ERT, and Cognition in Postmenopausal Women

We theorize that moderate drinking influences cognition within a complex system of mediating variables that includes behavioral factors and overall physical and mental health. Funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, the overarching goal of this project is to examine these complex multi-faceted relationships. Short-term benefits of this work include identification of specific mediating factors that serve to influence the alcohol/cognition relationship in aging women. Long-term benefits include an increased understanding of the associations between alcohol and health, and the influences of specific health-related behaviors.
