Dr Sarah Wadd
Drinking in Old Age:
The Good, the Bad
and the Ugly
Wednesday 13 February 2013
5 - 6pm, Drinks reception from 4pm to 5pm
Auditorium G101
Park Square, Luton
Dr Wadd is the director of the Substance Misuse and Ageing
Research Team (SMART) in the Tilda Goldberg Centre for Social
Work and Social Care and a leading researcher in this area. She
is a founding member of the Coalition for Older Adults Affected
by Substance Misuse, and recently appeared on the Panorama
programme ‘Old, Drunk and Disorderly?’
In this lecture, Dr Wadd will discuss the benefits of drinking
in moderation in old age (the good), the harms associated
with heavier drinking (the bad) and the catastrophic effects of
alcohol dependence (the ugly). She will present evidence which
suggests that older people with alcohol problems are often
unseen, misdiagnosed or ignored and gives her ideas on what
can be done about it.
