The Effects of Alcohol in Women

  • : Online
Lecture Overview

Drinking alcohol is somewhat of a normalised source of self-medication for many women, including new mothers. While it may seem ok to have a wine to 'take the edge off' a stressful day, this habit can often begin to have detrimental impacts on health. This session examines the different ways alcohol can affect females and why women in Australia are drinking more than ever right now.
