Event description
MS TEAMS LINK: Should governments regulate markets to improve public health? The case of minimum unit pricing for alcohol.

About this event

Speaker: Professor John Holmes

18:00 - 19:00

The speaker is Professor John Holmes, the director of the Sheffield Alcohol Research Group at ScHARR. Having advised Members of the Scottish Parliament on the introduction of alcohol minimum unit pricing, and led research into the use of lobbying within the alcohol industry, Professor Holmes is an expert in his field. He will have fascinating insight and stories to share with us when we meet in January.

The Sheffield Alcohol Policy Model has provided a key evidence base for debates around minimum unit pricing in the UK and internationally. Drawing on this expertise, and using alcohol minimum unit pricing as a case study, Professor Holmes will talk about the tensions between government regulation, liberty, and public health.

Free to attend

Attending is a great opportunity to meet other professionals interested in medicine and law, and to join in the conversation with Professor Holmes after the talk.
