The Geography of Retail Alcohol Sales and Alcohol-Related Injury

Tuesday 10/4 12:00PM - 1:30PM
Public Health A521
SOCIAL DYNAMICS & COMMUNITY HEALTH SPEAKER SERIES

Christopher Morrison, PhD
Postdoctoral Fellow
Penn Injury Science Center
University of Pennsylvania


A social epidemiologist specializing in spatial analytic methods, Dr. Morrison’s primary research focus is the geography of retail alcohol availability and alcohol-related harms. This talk investigates an apparent paradox found in the public health literature: lower income populations consume less alcohol than higher income populations yet alcohol-related injuries occur more commonly in lower income areas. Borrowing theory from economic geography and urban economics, Dr. Morrison proposes and tests a set of mechanisms that would contribute to these observed disparities.

Sponsored by the Department of Behavioral and Community Health Sciences

Light refreshments will be served.
