Learn More About Preventing Underage Drinking

Nearly 10 million 12- to 20-year-olds in the United States are underage drinkers. These underage drinkers can generate serious negative consequences for individuals, families, and communities. To address underage drinking, it is crucial to understand the nature and extent of the problem, details from recent research, and evidence-based strategies.

The Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Prevention of Underage Drinking (ICCPUD) is developing a series of webinars called Preventing Underage Drinking. The current webinar, titled "Introduction and Series Overview," is the first in the series and is available for online viewing. Also, the next webinar in the series will take place on March 7, 2013. Registration will be available soon.

Join more than 2,400 participants in exploring the issues surrounding underage drinking.
