We were delighted to welcome Ann McKechin MP to the Unit on 27th May to talk with Dr Carol Emslie about research on gender and alcohol-related deaths in Scotland

 

Dr Emslie and Ann McKechin enjoyed a wide ranging discussion about changes in drinking over time among men and women and different policies which might influence alcohol consumption, including price, availability, policing and changing the ‘drinking culture'.  Ann was very interested in the Gender and Health Team's work on alcohol and the Unit's objective to influence policy and practice by communicating research results to a wide range of audiences.
