Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems (SHAAP) and the Scottish Alcohol Research Network (SARN) invite researchers to submit their research proposals for the 2022 Alcohol Occasionals series on the theme Alcohol and Society. We are interested to hear from researchers from any discipline who wish to share their research relating to this theme. We envisage these seminars will all take place online or hybrid (both online and in-person, in Edinburgh).
There will be four seminars in 2022, all 12:30pm-2pm UK time:
Thursday 31 March
Wednesday 20 April
Monday 23 May
Tuesday 21 June
For more information on proposal requirements and submission please visit SHAAP’s website. The deadline for proposal submissions is 9am, Monday 7 February.
The full recording of the special Scottish Alcohol Research Network (SARN) and Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems (SHAAP) seminar to recognise Dr Eric Carlin’s many contributions as SHAAP Director is now available. Held on Monday 15 November via Zoom.
Attendees were treated to four fantastic presentations unpacking the impact of the pandemic on alcohol consumption and harms in South Africa (Professor Charles Parry), India (Dr. Abhijit Nadkarni), Australia (Dr. Sarah Callinan) and England and Scotland (Professor Niamh Fitzgerald).
In this blog post, Yvette Mojica-Perez (PhD student, La Trobe University) and Dr. Claire Wilkinson (Senior Research Fellow, University of New South Wales & Webinar Chair), provide a summary of each presentation and then discuss some overarching themes.
