For this study, FARE partnered with the Centre for Alcohol Policy and Research at La Trobe University to examine ways to support women aged 40-65 years who drink alcohol and would like to reduce the amount they drink. 

Your participation will help generate urgently needed evidence to support women in this age group to feel well and stay healthy.
