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 hosted 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.

This month’s webinar will focus on the “shape of the solution”, highlighting evidence-based strategies for preventing underage drinking that are age- and culturally appropriate and that address both individual and environmental factors. Following their presentations, panelists will engage with participants in a live question-and-answer period.

Participating ICCPUD member agencies include the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the Office of National Drug Control Policy, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
