The Canberra Collaboration: Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug Research Symposium

The symposium aims to gather ACT based alcohol, tobacco and other drug (ATOD) researchers across institutions, services, workers, policy makers and consumers to showcase recent ACT research activities with a focus on ATOD.
The symposium will include a workshop on better understanding the use of, and our responses to, crystalline methamphetamines in the ACT. The workshop and networking lunch will provide an opportunity to network, exchange ideas and support future collaborations.
This is the third Canberra Collaboration gathering and it will seek to generate further networking and collaboration opportunities (e.g. consultancies, applications for grants, etc.).
