Date

September 14 – 16, 2022

Place

Arlington, VA, United States

About

The 19th in a series of conferences on preventing and reducing alcohol-related problems using public policy strategies.

The alcohol policy conferences are a series that, from its outset in 1981, has been a forum for researchers, community practitioners, and public officials to meet and exchange findings, explore evidence-based solutions and consider the adoption of policies aimed at minimizing risks associated with alcohol use. The conferences have been organized by governmental, non-governmental, and private organizations over the years. AP19 is coordinated by the U.S. Alcohol Policy Alliance, a national coalition of local and state organizations translating alcohol policy research into public health practice and independent of commercial interests.

The AP19 Conference is co-chaired by Dr. Timothy S. Naimi, Canadian Institute for Substance Use Research (CISUR), the University of Victoria, and Dr. Alicia Sparks, Vice-Chair of the U.S. Alcohol Policy Alliance, Abt Associates. The co-chairs are joined on the planning committee by Dr. David Jernigan, Boston University School of Public Health, and Nicole Holt, Chair of the U.S. Alcohol Policy Alliance, Texans For Safe and Drug-Free Youth.
