Paul Gilbert Portrait
Assistant Professor

Dr. Gilbert’s primary focus is alcohol use, including disparities in hazardous drinking, treatment for alcohol use disorders, and pathways to recovery. A secondary line of research focuses on improving the health of Latino communities in non-traditional settlement states like Iowa through participatory, action-oriented research. Working with the West Liberty Coalition, a community-academic partnership in Iowa’s first majority-Latino rural town, Dr. Gilbert led a community survey to identify strengths and health concerns. Here is the survey’s summary report in English and in Spanish.
