The Postsecondary Education Partnership — Alcohol Harms (PEP-AH), the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA), and Victoria University in the University of Toronto invite you to join them for the annual Ontario Symposium on Alcohol Harms Reduction on University and College Campuses.
PEP-AH is a network of almost 40 Canadian universities and colleges, the Canadian Centre for Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA) and Universities Canada, that is using an evidence-based framework, and encouraging collaborations to help reduce alcohol harms and address drinking culture on Canadian campuses. PEP-AH invites you to learn more about the organization and join the discussion during their annual symposium where you will hear from students and experts, share best practices, learn about on-campus initiatives and talk about strategies to help support student health, well-being and safety.
The Morning Keynote Speaker will be Dr. Sherry Stewart, PhD, FRSC, Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology and Neuroscience, Canada Research Chair in Addictions and Mental Health, Dalhousie University; Site Lead Researcher for The Caring Campus Project, and Project Director, the Univenture Partnership. She will be speaking on Campus-Based Partnerships for Reducing Alcohol Harms: From Caring Campus to Univenture.
Student voices are key to PEP-AH’s success; therefore it is encouraged for staff and faculty to bring students from their campus who are engaged in health promotion/alcohol harm reduction-related work. The CCSA can support student travel costs. Student registrants can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
