Eventbrite -  Drink Wise, Age Well Report Launch and Panel Discussion

This year’s theme is ‘Calling Time – Addressing ageism and age discrimination in alcohol research, policy and practice’. The report by ILC-UK, the University of Bedfordshire and Addaction explores whether alcohol policy and practice is adequately responding to the growing issue of alcohol use in later life, or if there is a culture of ageism and age discrimination in relation to alcohol prevention and treatment.  

At the event we will have a panel of experts to discuss the report findings and recommendations
