Alcohol consumption in women is becoming an increasing public health concern. Depression, the most prevalent and persistent mental disorder in women, has been shown to be related to alcohol consumption.
This study examines the association between alcohol intake and depression in community-dwelling older women. The Women’s Healthy Ageing Project (WHAP) has prospective longitudinal, epidemiological data on alcohol consumption and mood of Australian women from age 45 over 25 years.
This project will provide the opportunity for publication, as well as participant contact and clinical skills experience.
This research project is available to PhD, Masters by Research, Honours, Master of Biomedical Science students to join as part of their thesis.
