Calling all Citizen Scientists!
Do you want to be a part of a research study that will make a real difference? South Australian women aged 18 and over are invited to become citizen scientists as a part of a Flinders University study, supported by Council SA and Flinders Foundation, that seeks to understand how much alcohol advertising women see online.
Recent data from FARE shows that there has been a 300 per cent increase in engagement in alcohol advertising during the Coronavirus Pandemic, with women targeted as a key market group.
Increased alcohol advertising leads to increased alcohol consumption which can be detrimental to women’s health¬—research shows a 60 per cent increase in breast cancer risk in women who are heavy drinkers compared to women who are non-drinkers.
Through taking part in the study, you can help us shine a spotlight on alcohol advertising and help us gather evidence that can hold alcohol companies to account.
