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.
