From the Specialized Information Services (SIS) Outreach and Special Populations branch:
Many Americans drink occasionally, and moderate drinking is probably safe for many people. However, some people should not drink at all, including alcoholics, children, pregnant women, people taking certain medicines, and people with certain medical conditions. April is Alcohol Awareness Month, and health professionals can find a variety of free online resources from National Library of Medicine (NLM) to help diverse populations learn more about responsible alcohol consumption:
- General Public – Find reliable resources about alcohol, alcoholism and alcohol abuse on MedlinePlus, including links to basic information, prevention and risk factors, statistics, journal articles, health check tools, information for specific populations (men, women, teens, seniors), and more.
- Multilingual Populations – Find documents, audio, and video in multiple languages related to alcohol on HealthReach. Also find links to resources in multiple languages on alcoholism at MedlinePlus.
- Individuals with HIV/AIDS – AIDSource provides links to reliable resources on how drug and alcohol use can impact the health of individuals with HIV/AIDS.
