Professor Sally Casswell, co-director of the SHORE and Whāriki Research Centre, has been elected president of the Kettil Bruun Society for Epidemiological and Social Research in Alcohol.
She was elected to the position in 2015 and served as president-elect before taking up the position of president at the international research organisation’s recent annual conference, held in Sheffield, England.
The organisation, which was established in 1987, aims to promote social and epidemiological research that fosters a comparative understanding of the social aspects of alcohol use and alcohol problems and promotes a spirit of international collaboration.
Professor Casswell has been a member of the World Health Organisation’s expert advisory panel on drug dependence and alcohol problems since 1986 and in 2015 was elected chair of the Global Alcohol Policy Alliance, the premier international non-governmental organisation for the promotion of evidence based alcohol policy.
