Princeton Symposium to Encourage Interdisciplinary Approach to Alcoholism

Princeton University, home to thousands of brilliant minds from diverse intellectual backgrounds, is encouraging its students and faculty to work across departments to gain insight into risky drinking behavior.  Scholars of all disciplines are encouraged to attend symposiums held every Friday, Saturday, Tuesday, and Thursday night.  Some of their research methodologies are published below:
