Webinar #5: "The Role of Public Health in Preventing Underage Drinking and Excessive Drinking by Adults"

 Wednersday  June 26, 2013, 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. EDT.

Excessive alcohol use, including underage drinking, accounts for an average of 80,000 deaths and 2.3 million Years of Potential Life Lost in the United States each year, and cost the U.S. $223.5 billion in 2006. National experts will provide an overview of recent scientific findings on underage and binge drinking in the U.S. as well as Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF)-recommended strategies to address it; examine new research findings on the relationship between state alcohol policies and underage drinking; discuss the current status of alcohol regulations in the U.S.; and present case studies on the translation of CPSTF-recommended strategies into public health practice. This webinar is hosted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
