When: April 17, 2013, 2:00 to 3:15 p.m. EDT
Who: A panel of national experts on underage drinking
Why: Nearly 10 million 12- to 20-year-olds in the United
States are underage drinkers. Underage drinking poses serious negative consequences
for individuals, families, and communities. This webinar series features national
leaders and experts discussing the extent and nature of the problem, lessons from
recent research, and evidence-based strategies for addressing underage drinking.
What: In this webinar, national experts will expand
on the “shape of the solution” to underage drinking introduced by Ms. Harding during
the first webinar in the series. The discussion will focus on evidence-based strategies
for preventing underage drinking that are age and culturally appropriate and address
both individual and environmental factors. Following their presentations, panelists
will engage with participants in a live question-and-answer period.
