Unhealthy alcohol use is the third most common preventable death in America. And yet studies show that just a 90-second conversation with a doctor could make a difference. 

Now VCU has gotten a grant to study how family doctors can do a better job addressing dangerous drinking. 

University of Virginia has received a multi million dollar grant from the National Institutes of Health. Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond first received the same grant a year ago, paving the way for more medical research in Virginia.
