18th Alcohol Policy Conference April 11-13, 2018 Washington, DC - USA

Advocate Institute


Tuesday, April 10
Wednesday, April 11

Attendees of the Advocate Institute, a preconference session prior to AP18, will have the opportunity to learn strategies for translating alcohol policy research into public health practice in a setting with fellow advocates from across the country. Participants will learn from national experts with a goal to providing a translational emphasis in preparation for the science-focus of Alcohol Policy 18/AP18 immediately following the institute.

The Advocate Institute is open only to local- and state-level advocates from nonprofits and public health agencies with a commitment that they and their organization are free of commercial interests, including alcohol industry influence. Registration for the Advocate Institute is open only to those also attending and registering for the AP18 Conference that immediately follows the institute.

The institute will convene at 8:30 a.m. through 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 10, 2018, and again from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, April 11, 2018. The Advocate Institute will conclude in time for participants to join AP18 when it begins at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday.

We look forward to having you join us as we build an evidence-based social movement together!
