In this 6th webinar of the Preventing Underage Drinking series sponsored by the Federal Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Prevention of Underage Drinking (ICCPUD) and hosted by the U.S. Department of Education (ED), panelists will explore prevention research that strongly supports the use of comprehensive, integrated programs with multiple complementary components to address underage drinking. Such evidence-based prevention strategies geared to secondary and post-secondary students require collaborative efforts between organizational leaders at high schools and colleges, and key community members.

Learning objectives for this webinar include identifying key constituents for collaboration, developing specific mechanisms for engaging key campus and community groups, developing comprehensive gender- and culturally-appropriate approaches to working with high schools, colleges, and communities, and identifying methods of moving coalitions from talk to action.
