Scientific Questions Being Studied

Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) is a devastating illness with a high prevalence across the United States. AUD can have significant detrimental effects on a person's quality of life, as well as the quality of life of their loved ones. Alcohol is a unique drug in that it is legal in the United States, but is still known to cause harm and addiction in a substantial segment of the population. My research aims to examine Alcohol Use Disorder in diverse populations, and examine the disparate impacts Alcohol Use disorder can have on those previously underrepresented in research. Specifically addressing Social Determinants of Health, we will highlight the role of stigmatization and lack of access to treatment resources as contributors to any disparities we may find, using best practices for culturally competent research.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Disease Focused Research (Alcohol Use Disorder)
  • Population Health

Scientific Approaches

I plan to use the All of Us database as well as multivariate regression to determine associations between various sources of intersectional identity and impact of alcohol use disorder. I will use a program called Stata to do statistical analysis to tease apart what parts of a person's background cause them to feel a lesser or greater impact of alcohol use disorder on their quality of life.

Anticipated Findings

I expect to find that some with different intersectional identities experience alcohol use disorder's impacts differently than others with different identities. This can help inform future treatment strategies for these populations. Furthermore, I expect to learn about the burden of alcohol use disorder on a diverse group of Americans that are underrepresented in medical research. These findings can be used to tailor interventions that help these populations in the future.
