Forthcoming Event: Alcohol Without The Hangover? Using Science to reduce the harms of Alcohol

Debate and Discussion with Professor David Nutt
17.30 – 19.30, Wednesday, 19th February 2014
At the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, 9, Queen Street, Edinburgh

Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems (SHAAP) and the Scottish Alcohol Research Network (SARN) are delighted to announce an ‘extra’ to their series of ‘Alcohol Occasional’ free public seminars. On Wednesday, 19th February 2014, Professor David Nutt will talk about his long career in trying to develop new treatments for alcoholism and alcohol damage and his new proposal of replacing alcohol with a ‘safer’ alternative.

Alcohol is responsible for twenty deaths in Scotland every week. In this seminar, we will discuss how new scientific developments may open up the possibility of producing new alcohol products ‘without the hangover’, including exploring the social implications of such moves. This debate has far reaching implications, not only for health professionals but for all individuals and family members affected by and concerned about alcohol-related harms.
