Alcohol and Public Health: Framing and communicating risk
A one day conference focusing on alcohol and public health, specifically how risk is framed and communicated, which aims to critically examine:

- The factors which influence how public communication is framed;
- and the ethical dilemmas that may arise in the processes of selection and interpretation of research findings for public communication.
- Dr. Adam Burgess, Professor of Risk Research, University of Kent: Effective lifestyle risk communication: What are the challenges?
- Dr. Janne Tolstrup, Professor at the National Institute of Public Health, University of Southern Denmark. Case Study: Alcohol and Cancer – informing the public.
