“About 25 percent of emergency department admissions, it’s been thought, for older adults may be related to some sort of alcohol-medication interaction. That’s really astonishing if you think about it," says the Geisel School of Medicine’s Stephen Bartels in a VPR story about the growing problem of substance abuse among older Vermonters.

Bartels is a professor of psychiatry and a professor of family and community medicine at Geisel and a professor of The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice.
