Club Health San Francisco 2013 was the 8th International Conference on Nightlife, Substance Use and Related Health Issues. The event was held in May 2013 and marked almost 15 years of international Club Health conferences organised by the Centre for Public Health, Liverpool John Moores University.
The conference aims to build capacity and capability among all groups that have a stake in healthy nightlife – from the public health and government agencies that regulate it, to the club owners, festival organisers and promoters that make it happen, to the participants without whom it would not exist.
