Robert Saltz, PhD
Dr. Saltz has focused his research on ways in which drinking contexts may influence the risk of subsequent injury or death. He has conducted several studies on "responsible beverage service" programs that seek to have bar and restaurant personnel intervene to reduce the risk of intoxication or of driving while impaired. Other research projects have included drinking among college students, work-related drinking among public-sector employees, developing indicators of drinking problems among women, and the design and implementation of comprehensive community prevention interventions to reduce alcohol-involved trauma.
