A WITNESS SEMINAR ON 50 YEARS OF THE MCA AND ALCOHOL TREATMENT
To mark the 50th anniversary of the MCA, we are holding a Witness Seminar at BMA House, London on 14th November 2017. This will be a unique event in the history of alcohol and health.
The MCA was founded in 1967 by a group of doctors from a range of specialties, to improve the management of patients with alcohol related harm. There have been many changes during the last 50 years, ranging from the way the relationship between alcohol and health is conceived to the policy context in which alcohol treatment takes place. The aim of this event is to capture this evolution, with the testimony of some of the early members of the MCA and others involved in the alcohol and health field over the last 50 years.
