Join the Victoria Foundation and Community Action Initiative for a freewheeling conversation to explore Victoria’s favourite legal drug and unpack our drinking culture: why people love it, and the myths and evidence on how it affects our health, our communities, and our economy.
You’ll hear from speakers about the business, health and the culture of alcohol, and engage with others in a workshop setting to talk about one of society’s biggest pastimes.
* Dr. Richard Stanwick, Chief Medical Health Officer for Island Health
* Rod Phillips, Co-Founder at Liquify.ca and Radio Show Host at The Dork UnCorked
* Dan Reist, Assistant Director of Knowledge Exchange, The Canadian Institute for Substance Use Research (CISUR) at Uvic
This Vital Conversation is open to all community members, and diverse perspectives and sectors are encouraged to join.
