Dr Richard Chenhall presents ‘Alcohol, alcoholism and the role of self-help groups in Japan’, on Monday 17 March from 12pm to 1pm.
As part of a Japan Society for the Promotion of Science Postdoctoral Fellowship, held at Tokyo's Sophia University, Dr Chenhall spent 15 months in Japan to study alcoholism and the Japanese self-help group called "Danshukai".
This presentation will provide an introduction to alcohol and alcoholism in Japan, discussing some of the factors involved in understanding why over two million people are alcohol dependent in Japan.
Dr Chenhall is an NHMRC postdoctoral fellow with the Menzies School of Health Research.
This seminar takes place in the Menzies Seminar Room, John Mathews Building, Royal Darwin Hospital Campus.
