Research Interests and Experience
Dr. Mundt’s work has impacted real-life discussion in the national news media about prevention efforts and the enormous medical costs inflicted by binge alcohol drinking as reported by National Public Radio, US News and World Report and NBC News, among others. Dr. Mundt’s health economic analysis was instrumental in the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) “B” grade recommendation that all adult primary care patients receive screening for problem alcohol use and that at-risk drinkers receive brief alcohol intervention counseling. Grade “B” indicates that USPSTF views the benefit from universal alcohol screening as moderate to substantial.
