Alcohol & Medicine: Past, Present & Future

MCA Symposium, 15.11.17, British Medical Association

On 15th November 2017, on the 50th anniversary of the MCA, we are holding a symposium on Alcohol and Medicine; past present and future at BMA house in London. In keeping with our approach, we are delighted to have world class speakers covering the key areas of alcohol related harm and effective management.  The opening talk will be given by MCA president Professor Sir Michael Marmot on public health and epidemiology.  The Max Glatt memorial lecturer will be Professor Jonathan Shepherd who has had a ground-breaking career linking from accident and emergency departments to other sectors to prevent alcohol related harm. During the day there will talks by leaders in their fields on the liver, on medical treatments, on psychological therapies and on neuropsychiatric approaches in relation to alcohol.

A unifying and unique feature of the MCA symposium is its appeal across specialties and across disciplines, to practionners, researchers and students.
