'Risky Drinking'

MCA Symposium, 14.11.18, Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, central London

On 14 November 2018, we are holding a symposium on 'Risky Drinking' at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in central London.  

The MCA Symposium has grown over the last few years and is now one of the foremost conferences on alcohol and health harm. It attracts an ever larger audience of health professionals from all disciplines who value its very wide ranging approach to alcohol, from basic science to public health, whilst retaining a clinical focus.   

This year we are developing a programme looking at different aspects, including Professor Roger Williams on the Lancet Commission on the Liver, Clive Henn from PHE on public health and the PHE’s CQUIN  programme to reduce alcohol related risks, Professor Ketan Patel on the recent elucidation of the molecular basis of alcohol in cancer causation, Dr John Holmes on risk, guideline development and implementation and Professor Colin Drummond on alcohol treatment services.

In addition, we are delighted to announce that the 2018 Max Glatt memorial lecture will be given by Dr Jane Marshall, consultant psychiatrist at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, who has had an illustrious career managing alcohol related health harm including among health professionals.
