Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems (SHAAP) and the Scottish Alcohol Research Network (SARN) are delighted to announce the start of a series of lunchtime ‘Alcohol Occasional’ seminars to showcase new and innovative research on alcohol use.

All the seminars will be run in conjunction with the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh and will take place from 12.30 – 14.00 at their historic premises at 9 Queen Street, Edinburgh, EH2 1JQ. Lunch will be provided.

These events will provide the chance for researchers, practitioners and policy makers and members of the public to hear about new alcohol related topics and discuss and debate implications for policy and practice. The theme for the first year of the seminars is “Alcohol and Young People”. Click here for a copy of the first paper in the series by Jemma Lennox.
