U.S. HELSINKI COMMISSION TO HOLD BRIEFING ON U.S.-RUSSIAN COOPERATION IN THE FIGHT AGAINST ALCOHOLISM


WASHINGTON—The Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe (U.S. Helsinki Commission) announced the following briefing:

 

U.S.-Russian Cooperation in the Fight Against Alcoholism: A Glass Half Full?

Tuesday, August 2, 2011

2:00 – 4:00 p.m.

2360 Rayburn House Office Building

 

Following our recent hearing on demographic trends in the OSCE region, which featured Russia as a case study, the Helsinki Commission will discuss prospects for sharing experience, strength, and hope on treating the disease of alcoholism. Please join us for what promises to be a fascinating and informative look at divergent approaches to treating a problem that vexes American and Russian society and is a significant factor in the alarmingly low life expectancy of Russian men.

 

Panelists:

Dr. Margaret Murray - Director, International Research Program, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland

Dr. Eugene Zubkov - Co-Founder, House of Hope on a Hill, Leningrad oblast, Russia
