NDSAG 2014 Conference Focuses on IBA and Alcohol Policy

27 Feb

The New Directions in the Study of Alcohol Group will hold their annual conference in Dundee from Wednesday 23rd until Saturday 26th April 2014.  The conference is available as a residential or day conference, but participants can also opt to attend one of three individual day symposia.  The latest conference programme has just been announced: NDSAG 2014 Full Conference Programme.NDSAG

The event has a reputation for being an excellent forum for debate, supporting individuals new to the alcohol field, and enabling networking between colleagues old and new.

Friday 25th April focuses on Alcohol Brief Intervention Research (or IBA) and will feature inputs from the Monitoring and Evaluating Scotland’s Alcohol Strategy (MESAS) team, Glasgow University, Stirling University, University of St. Andrews, University of Dundee and the Alcohol Academy.

Thursday 24th April will focus on policy including minimum unit pricing and the implications for alcohol policy if Scotland opts for independence in September.  A half day research symposium on Saturday 26th February completes what promises to be an excellent event.

You can book online for the conference now – residential spaces are limited.   You can also book using this form: NDSAG 2014 Booking Form
