Lecture/Seminar 50th Anniversary Deans' Lecture Series: Alcohol Supply, Demand and Harm Reduction: What is the Best Cocktail of Policies to Manage our Favourite Drug? 2012-11-21 19:00:00
Description

Alcohol remains Canada's favourite recreational drug and is estimated by the World Health Organization to be the leading cause of preventable illness, injury and disability in the Americas region, ahead of obesity, cigarette smoking and high blood pressure. Tim Stockwell, PhD, Department of Psychology and Director of the Centre for Addictions Research of BC, UVic, discusses new knowledge regarding health risks and possible health benefits from drinking and reviews the evidence for what policies might help us best balance the risks and benefits in our relationship with alcohol.
