10:00am – 11:00am, webinar
Big Alcohol is Big Business: Where does health fit in? The alcohol industry — alcohol brewers, producers, vendors and trade associations — has a duty to its shareholders and a duty to the public. To their shareholders, alcohol industry organizations must increase profits to the best of their abilities. To the public, these organizations are bound by regulatory agencies to protect the health of the most vulnerable. These dueling mandates create a familiar conflict seen within many of the ‘Big’ industries. What are the public health lessons we can learn from past experiences with Big Tobacco, Big Food, Big Pharma, and other Big corporations that will translate into working with or without Big Alcohol? Participants of this teleconference can expect to get a greater understanding of the context of alcohol sales (industry’s involvement) and advertising and its effects on public health and the common elements of big industries (Big Alcohol, Big Tobacco, Big Pharma, Big Food).
Deadline: January 10, 2011.

The Role of Primary Care in Health System Reform.
Primary care is the vital first point of consultation for all patients, regardless of age, issue or disease. Its quality has a cascading effect – positive or negative – throughout the entire health care system. Accordingly, improvements to primary care are in the interest of professionals at every point of the health care continuum. Join us on February 22, 2011 to learn how you can be a positive force for primary care reform. Our agenda includes current progress in the implementation of primary care reform, and the vision of primary care by 2020. You will also hear firsthand of the British experience with primary care reform.
