FARE holds functions and events in various locations around Australia to highlight our research findings, present our policy proposals, engage with communities and like-minded stakeholders, and to facilitate discussions and debate about alcohol. We often post real-time updates on Twitter, and publish multimedia and written outputs to our website post-event.

Driving change: a frontline perspective on alcohol harm

What does your Saturday night look like? Are you a reveller cutting loose on the dancefloor, or maybe it’s a glass of red with dinner at your favourite restaurant, or possibly pyjamas and Netflix on the couch?

No matter how you spend it, have you ever stopped to wonder what a Saturday night looks like for our police and hospital emergency department workers?

Join us for an open and frank discussion about what really happens on Canberra’s streets on the weekends.

Guests will have an opportunity to hear from special guest, Professor Jonathan Shepherd, who is visiting Australia from the United Kingdom to assist with the ‘Driving Change’ research study at Calvary Hospital.

The forum will be facilitated by Professor Steve Robson, President of the Australian Medical Association (ACT), and will include a light lunch and networking opportunity.

The full program will be released shortly.
