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. The Preventing Underage Drinking webinar series deloped by the Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Prevention of Underage Drinking (ICCPUD) 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.
During May's webinar, national experts will discuss the importance of justice system involvement in preventing underage drinking and alcohol’s negative impact on our nation’s youth and public health and safety in general; the crucial role enforcement agencies play in preventing underage drinking; and the role of media and policy advocacy in ensuring that collaborative efforts are successful in moving effective strategies forward. Following their presentations, panelists will engage with participants in a live question-and-answer period. This webinar will be hosted by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, U.S. Department of Justice.
