The Alcohol Programs Team at the Public Health Advocacy
Institute of WA invite you to a free public seminar with Dr John Holmes from
the University of Sheffield. Dr John Holmes is a Reader in Alcohol Policy in
the Sheffield Alcohol Research Group. His research focusses on patterns and
trends in alcohol consumption and the analysis of alcohol policy options. Much
of his past work has focused on the development of the Sheffield Alcohol Policy
Model, which has been used in the UK and internationally to inform policy
debate around minimum pricing. In this seminar, Dr Holmes will discuss recent
research on the decline in youth drinking and the evidence base for minimum
pricing for alcohol, including its impact on groups of different income and
drinking levels and lessons learnt from policy processes elsewhere, followed by
Q&A.
